About the School of Business and Management, and the Department of Business and Society
The School of Business and Management is one of the eight schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have around 105 academic staff. We have over 1,600 undergraduate business studies students plus approximately 800 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QM. At the post-graduate level we have approximately 800 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of around 80 doctoral students.
SBM’s core purpose is to promote social justice, sustainability and good governance in the management of private, public and voluntary organisations through our research and education. We are a distinctive School that takes a humanities and social science-led approach to our scholarship and are now the largest school within QM’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, with its traditional strengths as a site of critical thinking in the humanities, law, history, geography and politics.
The Department of Business and Society contributes to SBM through world leading teaching and research in the areas of global value chains (and the relationship between the Global North and the Global South), business ethics, CSR, public management and institutions, social entrepreneurship and social innovation (in the local and global contexts), organization theory, critical management and business law. Our focus on the relationship between businesses, society, sustainability and social justice shapes the teaching and research environment of the Department of Business and Society. Department members are typically (but not exclusively) associated with the Research Centre on Labor and Global Production and the Organisational Processes and Practices Research Group. As such, the Department examines business as a field of enquiry in its own right – an area to be subject to critical analysis in the broader context of the relationship between business and society.
