The Management Research Centre (MRC) based within the University of Wolverhampton Business School is focussed on research that provides solutions to current managerial issues and is relevant to specific professions and/or types of organisations.
We have a vibrant community of business researchers within the MRC assigned within designated research clusters:
- The HRM and Industrial Relations Cluster concentrates research on labour processes and employment relations, labour market economics and human resource development
- Staff in the Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management Cluster research on family businesses, rural enterprises and entrepreneurial learning
- The two core research areas in the Corporate Governance and Ethics Cluster are on boards of directors and CSR/sustainable development, with emerging scholarship in gender diversity
- Scholars in the International Business Cluster specialise in understanding determinants and impacts of foreign direct investment, and broader questions around globalisation inequality, and emerging economies
The research clusters provide a guide to the areas within which we possess specialist knowledge and where we wish to continue to develop our expertise.
In focusing our research effort we are able to provide a study environment within which there is access to friendly support from peers with the same research interests. We prize our relationship with our PhD students and are always looking at ways of improving their study/research experiences.
