About the Programme

Research is central to the activities of the School of Management at the University of Bristol. The School comprises a group of academic staff with a variety of interests and a focus on research that has practical relevance.

The results of the most recent UK-wide research assessment, REF2014, rated 78 per cent of the research activity in business and management as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'. We’re a top 20 UK University for Business and Management and a top 10 UK University for Marketing (Complete University Guide 2022).

We have an enthusiastic research community, a welcoming atmosphere and excellent research facilities. We are large enough to have expertise in many fields, but small enough to be friendly and allow regular contact between students and staff members. Currently there are about 50 research students and more than 60 research active academics enrolled in the School.
