WBS Research

Worcester Business School has a small but growing research base. Having made its first submission to the REF (Unit of Assessment 19: Business & Management Studies) and launched its DBA program in 2013 it is now firmly committed to substantially growing its research, applied research and knowledge transfer activity in the next five years. WBS research is rooted in local, regional, national and international contexts and benefits our students through our focus on research-informed teaching and our innovative research degree program.

Research is focused in the School in the three main Subject Group areas of: Computing, Leadership, Management and Human Resources and Marketing as well as through our four cross-discipline Research Groups:

 

The Applied Research Group has evolved from the highly successful research centre, The Centre for People at Work, and now embraces applied research and consultancy across the whole School ensuring our research has potential IMPACT in the real world.

We invite you to sample our research first hand by attending one of our open research seminars or by reading some of our latest research publications.

We have always been conscious to avoid ‘ivory tower’ research for its own sake and ensure our links to public and private sector organisations keep us in touch with constant change.

Talks and workshops

You can feed your appetite for knowledge at the University’s research seminars, which run throughout the year on topical subjects, often closely related to individual research projects.  We invite distinguished speakers from the University and beyond to deliver these free lectures.

West Mercia Constabulary has worked with the University of Worcester for nearly 10 years on both academic programmes and research, which has led to national recognition.
