Our 25th anniversary provides an opportunity to reflect, to celebrate our achievements, and consider what comes next. At Saïd Business School, we’re especially proud of our diverse, multi-disciplinary research community of over 80 faculty members who have produced a huge volume of outstanding research in the last 25 years.
We’re renowned worldwide for research on a wide range of subjects, and many of our faculty are field leaders that frequently engage with governments, global organisations, and the media, as well as lead businesses.
Since the School’s founding, philanthropic support has allowed us to invest in the frontiers of business research, propose innovative, evidence-based solutions, and to attract and retain top-class faculty members.
Early endowments of faculty posts came from Sir Peter Moores CBE DL, whose support created the Peter Moores Dean (most recently held by Peter Tufano and to be taken up by Soumitra Dutta in June), Peter Moores Professor of Finance (also held by Peter Tufano), Peter Moores Professor in Management Studies (most recently held by Colin Mayer) and Peter Moores Lectureship in Chinese Business Studies (held by Eric Thun), and from L'Oréal for the L'Oréal Chair in Marketing (held by Andrew Stephen). These positions, funded in perpetuity, provide a strong, secure base from which our faculty can innovate.
Further posts were facilitated by American Standard Companies for the Professor of Operations Management (held by Matthias Holweg), and by support from BT Global Services and P&O/DP World respectively to endow the BT Professor and Chair of Major Programme Management and the Dubai Ports World Professorship of Entrepreneurship and Innovation.
