Faculty & Research
The School



We have a diverse programme of events that seek to educate and energise a business community interested in huge and complex issues - the politics of global business, the regulatory environment, the rise and impact of social entrepreneurship, and the management of business model innovation.

With access to global thought-leaders from the wider university, we use our convening power to bring together students, academics and business leaders and innovators from around the world, not only to share their experiences but to inspire them to take positive action in order to address some of these issues.
