What we do
Welcome to research at Sheffield Business School
Sheffield Business School is one of the largest such institutions in the UK, with over 200 academic staff. As a result, the school’s research covers a wide spectrum of disciplines, ranging from finance and accounting, management, strategy, marketing, economics, international business and human resource management, through to specialist areas such as tourism, events management, food and nutrition.
Our staff were key contributors to the UK's Research Excellence Framework in 2014, working across the subject disciplines of Business and Management, Sport and Exercise Sciences, Leisure and Tourism, Communication Cultural and Media Studies, Library and Information Management, as well as Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Nursing and Pharmacy.
Research undertaken at SBS is largely shaped by the University's Creating Knowledge strategy, which sets out the following ambitions
- We will be recognised internationally for research which has real social, economic and cultural impact
- We will identify and seize opportunities to lead in new and emerging areas
- We will apply research to enrich students' learning and work with others to ensure translation into practice
