Our faculty and students are involved in research and other forms of professional activity that strengthen the links between teaching, the business context in which we operate, and the application and activation of learning.
One of the major focuses of the research and project work that is done in the Faculty of Management is that of knowledge mobilization - not only helping to make sure that the work that is done in academia is made available to those in our communities who can benefit most from it, but to ensure that communication channels are open and symmetical, thus blurring the boundaries between the producers and consumers of knowledge and making the work that we do here both relevant and deeply embedded in the local, regional, national and international communities we serve.
