Research in Keele Management School

Research in Keele Management School is oriented towards engagement and change within and beyond the academy. Drawing on the Keele tradition of interdisciplinary research rooted in the social sciences and humanities, we aim to address broad societal interests related to work, organisations and markets and researchers in KMS address key social challenges through in-depth and detailed research. Researchers in KMS have experience of a range of methodological approaches and a growing expertise in working with those disadvantaged or marginalized in society.
