At The York Management School, we place a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary research focusing on Management and Culture, Sustainability and Ethics, and Risk and Decision Making.

In 2016, faculty in the School led successful bids for two major Research Councils UK grants for interdisciplinary projects: IKnowFood (£3.3m from BBSRC) and LGBT Employee Networks in the NHS (£800,000 from the ESRC).

Our faculty regularly publish in internationally leading academic journals in business and management and related disciplines, including:

  • Academy of Management Learning and Education
  • Business History Review
  • Economic Journal
  • Economic History Review
  • European Journal of Operational Research and Organization Studies

We have an active, vibrant and collegiate postgraduate research community, and welcome enquiries from people interested in starting a PhD.
