University of Liverpool Management School
The University of Liverpool Management School is one of an elite group of institutions worldwide to hold the gold standard 'triple-crown' accreditation from AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS.
The University of Liverpool Management School works with today's leaders in business and management to prepare its students to be the leaders of the future. The school's mission is 'Learning to make a difference' and there is a fundamental belief that the purpose of the School's research and teaching is to develop students who are not only good managers, but individuals who are truly committed to making a difference. We hope that our students will use the knowledge and skills they gain here in their future roles to help solve some of the most endemic problems individuals, enterprises and communities face.
The University of Liverpool Management School has a research environment that is conducive to producing research of world-class and international excellence in its originality, significance, rigour and impact. The impact of research at ULMS meets the highest standards of reach and significance, locally and globally.
In 2014 the quality of Management School research was recognised by the Research Excellence Framework (REF) which assesses the quality and impact of research conducted by UK universities. The School was ranked 27th out of 101 in the UK for the number of research submissions graded as 4* (world-leading) and 3* (internationally excellent).
The Global Slavery Index (2018) estimates that the G20 countries collectively import $354 billion of ‘at-risk’ products per year, with the UK representing £14 billion. Management School researchers are working with the UK Home Office, Crown Commercial Service, and the Liverpool City Region’s Combined Authority to identify ways in which businesses can improve transparency and tackle modern slavery within supply chains. The research also extended outside of the UK when the Management School was asked to provide training to Vivienne Westwood’s supply chain and procurement teams in Milan.
Our research has also led to the development of a new index measuring the strength of patent systems to assist the decision-making and strategic responses of firms and policymakers. The new index measures the strength of 51 national patent systems and has studied their effect on international business.
Achieving gender equality is a key issue and continued challenge for UK organisations. Management School research has identified that men working more flexibly can be key to work-family conflicts being more easily resolved. The findings were applied by a business-led membership organisation made up of more than 120 ‘progressive’ businesses of all sizes from 64 countries culminating in clear guidance for those organisations, with regards to increasing male engagement in non-work care, and their uptake of family-friendly policies.
