Aberdeen Business School

Aberdeen Business School hosts a vibrant research community and is active in a number of applied research topics. We offer investigative expertise and doctoral research opportunities in a wide range of business subject areas including accounting and finance, management, and people, organisations and practice.

There are two main research groups:

Small Business and Enterprise (led by Dr James Cunningham) is made up of those researchers working on studies related to entrepreneurship and/or innovation activities in micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises. The Group continues a legacy of entrepreneurship research within Aberdeen Business School. Our researchers embrace a variety of perspectives on entrepreneurship and innovation, utilising a range of approaches in their studies to provide a multi-faceted view on how entrepreneurship and innovation contribute to our society. Recent studies by the group’s established researchers and doctoral community have focused on the contextual nature of entrepreneurship, considering issues such as social interaction, particularities of place and industry, and the role of entrepreneurship in developing economies.

Energy, Sustainability and Society (led by Prof Zoe Morrison and Prof Peter Strachan) covers research into contemporary societal issues, with a particular but not restrictive focus on issues relating to energy and sustainability, circular economy, green businesses, energy policy, energy transitions and social acceptance of major energy infrastructure developments.

Other areas of research investigation include financial operations, accounting education and practice development, project management and operational safety.
