Subject Group

Strategic Management and International Business

Economic rationalisation, socio-cultural and technological change, sustainability and environmental pressures together with the rapid rise of new economic powers outside of the western hemisphere have focussed the attention of managers, academics and those involved in public policy on the areas of strategic management and international business in an unprecedented manner.

Firms urgently need to transform their businesses and take a long-term strategic perspective to adequately adapt to the realities of an increasingly interconnected global business environment that invariably brings heightened levels of competition. Against this background, the Strategic Management and International Business subject group has a range of research and practice-based expertise to assist organisations and prepare students for the challenges presented in the contemporary business world. Current research projects centre on macro issues, including institutional and regulatory structures, in the UK, Europe and China.
