The advent of new technologies as well as ongoing social, environmental and organisational changes mean new approaches to innovation and entrepreneurship are needed and their effectiveness needs to be researched and validated. Faculty members are particularly interested in the core of themes of: spotting and leveraging entrepreneurial opportunities; managing the innovation process; building and operating entrepreneurial ecosystems; and commercialising science innovations.
Researchers in this area are also considering a variety of questions about what constitutes success across a range of different industries. These include: examining the rules and management of platform leadership; the social dynamics of adoption and its consequences for firms’ strategy and innovation; understanding the link between senior managerial style and firm strategy; and the effect of team selection processes on success.
Getting involved in the commercialisation of research helps academics focus on “real world” problems
Why we should care about creating more meaningful work and developing our skills, ideas and thinking
The COVID-19 pandemic has left a lot of us reevaluating our professional lives. A great skills, ideas and thinking coach can help you focus on what matters most and help you get ready for what comes next.
The School's work on management and entrepreneurship is led by the Department of Management & Entrepreneurship.
