About the School of Business and Management, and the Department of Business Analytics and Applied Economics

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 90 academic staff. We have over 1,600 undergraduate business studies students plus approximately 800 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. 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 QMUL’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 Analytics and Applied Economics focuses on solutions to technological, social and environmental challenges through data analysis. Our core value is collegiality. Departmental colleagues are committed to collective excellence in teaching and research in Business Analytics and Applied Economics and respect each other's abilities to work toward that purpose. The Department is research-led, and we publish in peer reviewed journals and monographs of leading university presses. Our research addresses the needs of practitioners across industry and government by applying cutting-edge research methods, focusing on significant technological, social and environmental challenges. Drawing on this work, research-led teaching equips students to respond to challenges on the basis of careful analysis and the application of sound methods and processes. The Department has introduced a range of innovative, exciting new degrees in recent years and is seeking colleagues who can contribute to the further development of these degrees.
