Liverpool Business School

Welcome to Liverpool Business School

An innovative and nurturing business school. 

We are an innovative business school, which nurtures talent and provides the knowledge, experience and contacts our students need to succeed in their specialist areas; whether that is within accounting, marketing, human resource management, public relations or business.

We are proud to provide a first rate teaching and learning environment backed by research and scholarship which is central to our School ethos, as is delivering practical business solutions to local, national and international businesses.

We’re an innovative business school based in the heart of Liverpool. We nurture talent and provide the knowledge, experience and contacts our students need to succeed. Our services for business deliver excellent and measurable results.

Our specialities and research

We're addressing some of the 21st century's most complex issues

Our academics are tackling complex issues, securing international acclaim in three broad research groupings relating to:

  • Finance, Economics Operations and Evaluation
  • Management Learning, Knowledge, Organisations, Human Resources and Evaluation
  • Marketing, Consumption, Social Engagement and Entrepreneurship

Building on the successes individuals in our research groups have achieved, we are now undertaking new work, developing a range of impactive research projects within social and economic engagement.

Although we value our international research, for the past 40 years our business academics have also worked alongside the North West’s business community. Together we have improved employability, boosted workforce productivity and generated innovation and growth. One way we do this is through our professional development programmes, which are bespoke and support the specific needs of each business we work with. For example, we created a management development course for Liverpool ONE.

As a School, we are very proud of our research students. Our thriving postgraduate research programmes attract scholars from all over the world, from China to Norway, and our state-of-the art postgraduate suite, along with our supportive staff, enables each student to fulfil their scholarly potential. This activity extends to our taught postgraduate programmes which have international collaborations with universities in Germany, the Czech Republic and Malaysia.

We are also working with several American universities, collaborating on research and practice-based activities within our specialist business areas. Thanks to these partnerships we are developing staff and student exchanges, which, through the sharing of ideas and experiences, will help everyone involved learn from one another.

Another added strength for the Liverpool Business School is its membership with the Chartered Association of Business Schools. This membership gives staff from the School access to a world-class professional network.
