Queen Mary University of London (QMUL)

QMUL was placed 9th in the UK among multi-faculty institutions in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework. It is the fourth largest college in the University of London and is growing rapidly. QMUL is a highly internationalised university, but with deep roots and continuing engagement with East London communities.

School of Business and Management

The School of Business and Management is one of the eight schools in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have 85 academic staff. We have over 1200 undergraduate business studies students plus approximately 600 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. At the post-graduate level we have approximately 600 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of around 70 doctoral students.

SBM’s core purpose is to promote social justice, sustainability and good governance in the management of private, public and voluntary organisations through our research and education. We are a distinctive School that takes a humanities and social science led approach to our scholarship, and are now the largest school within QMUL’s Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS), with its traditional strengths as a site of critical thinking in the humanities, law, history, geography and politics.

Department of Marketing

The Department of Marketing is research-led, and our academics publish in journals such as Journal of Marketing, Journal of Service Research, Journal of Consumer Research, Journal of Consumer Psychology, Industrial Marketing Management, Journal of Product Innovation Management, or Long Range Planning. We focus on excellence in teaching and have our own BSc in Marketing and Management (around 75 students yearly), as well as an MSc in Marketing (around 200 students yearly).
