Research at KBS is organised and reported in a number of ways. The four academic departments (Accounting & Finance, Economics, Management & Marketing, and Work & Employment Studies) all have active research strategies.
There are several broad thematic groupings including Work, Knowledge and Employment, and Public policy, Enterprise, Governance and Sustainability. There are also a number of active research clusters that encourage collaborative work with Ph.D. students and cross-departmental and inter-faculty research. Seminars featuring visiting guest speakers are organised by clusters, broad thematic groups, and departments, enriching the research culture of the KBS. KBS faculty are engaged in a wide range of research areas and a current list of their research interests is available here
