This post offers an opportunity to make a major contribution to the development and delivery of teaching in a distinctive Business School. You will be expected to have a demonstrably strong teaching record and be committed to innovative teaching methods.

School of Business and Management (SBM)

The School of Business and Management (SBM) is a research-led School that takes a humanities and social science led approach to our scholarship. We are a non-departmentalised 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.

The School has been undergoing a period of rapid growth, doubling our number of academic staff over the last five years. We presently have around 75 academic and 16 administrative staff, with more appointments in process. We have over 1,000 undergraduate business management students, plus approximately 800 students taking business in combination with other degree subjects within QMUL. At the post-graduate level we have around 450 MSc students and a well-established doctoral programme of 50+ doctoral students.

SBM recently re-committed to our core purpose, that is, to promote social justice, sustainability and good governance in the management of private, public and voluntary organisations through our research and education. We organise our activities thematically, cross-cutting traditional divisions between disciplinary departments. Members of staff are typically members of one or more groups and centres in areas such as equality and diversity, globalisation, organisational history, business ecosystems, marketing as a social phenomenon, management and organisational learning, public policy and management, behavioural finance, development finance, governance and sustainability.
