Faculty and research sheffield management

Part of a global university

Sheffield University Management School is home to a global community, and its faculty’s research and experience underpin this sense of internationalisation.

Around 39 per cent of our academic faculty are from overseas, from 24 countries, and staff in the school, although of UK origin, speak a number of languages and publish work of international calibre. Many graduates comment on how much they benefit from their programme’s global cohort.

We also encourage our staff to enhance their global network by teaching abroad in institutions such as Monash University, Australia; the Higher School of Economics, Russia; the European Academy of Management, the Netherlands; and Nanjing University, China.

International research at the school crosses all disciplines, but much focuses on international human resource management, doing business in emerging economies, international strategic alliances, international business and managing multinational enterprises, export marketing and international consumer research.

Sheffield University Management School has been awarded funding under the UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) from the British Council. The funding will support a partnership with the Indian Institute of Science (IIS) which will include participation in UK-India Staff Exchange.

Research seminars

We also welcome visiting scholars and other international speakers to present as part of the Management School's research seminar series. Read more about recent speakers here.

We also have a Visiting Scholar Scheme and in recent years several academics have been accommodated in Sheffield for visits of short and long term durations. These include academic researchers in the area of work psychology, international business, marketing, entrepreneurship and finance. Click here to read about our current visiting academics.
