Our Research Centre for Business and Law (RiBL) provides a hub which co-ordinates the collaborative strengths of six synergistic research centres focused on people and performance, international business and innovation, enterprise with a particular focus on SMEs, policy modelling, place management and law.
These centres conduct research which both develops theory and has substantial influence on the practice of business and management, law and wider policy.
A unique feature of RiBL is its Knowledge Clusters, based within research centres, that bring together academic staff, students and ‘real world’ partners to make sense of the key challenges facing contemporary business and society. RiBL is also home to the Faculty’s Graduate School for Business and Law. This is a thriving community of doctoral researchers exploring emerging issues of critical importance to business and society.
