The Management Discipline features critical research capabilities across macro- and micro-management topics that aim to create effective, innovative and sustainable organisations.

Our academic staff are constantly working to amplify their research and social reach to build better organisations and improve peoples’ experiences within the workplace. As such, our research attempts to address contemporary management issues, provide solutions to enhance both organisational effectiveness and employee wellbeing, and ultimately deliver improved social and economic outcomes. The Management Discipline has many areas of critical research expertise that lie across the following areas:

  • Strategic Management and International Business
  • Organisational Behaviour and Human Resource Management
  • Project Management and Operations Management
  • Innovation and Sustainability

Our research is published in top-tier business publications including FT50 and ABDC A* and A journals. Our researchers actively engage with industry partners through collaborative research, produce technical reports, host workshops, and conduct contracted research. Furthermore, the Adelaide Business School regularly hosts research seminars that are attended by staff, postgraduate and honours degree students as part of our commitment to research and scholarship development and exchange. To enhance the methodological knowledge of our researchers, we have partnered with the Institute for Statistical Science, offering live-streaming and on-demand workshops to support our staff and HDR students
