Impact is a vital part of ULSB’s activities. ULSB researchers engage with, help, support and train businesses, small and large, national and local governments, central banks, charities, non-governmental organisations, community groups and social movements in Britain and the rest of the world, making a real difference to people’s lives.
In doing so, our researchers are addressing contemporary challenges such as sovereign debt crises, modern slavery, working conditions in the digital economy, preventable deaths, women’s reproductive health, mental health, poverty and exclusion, gender inequality, domestic violence, volunteer engagement and many more.
Our impact work supports our close relationships with a diverse range of partners, who benefit from expertise in our excellent business, management and economics research.
We are proud to foster a supportive impact culture in the School of Business, encouraging engagement and application of research to affect change.
