Our research

Business research at St Mary's is very diverse and cross disciplinary. Staff research spans most areas of business such as marketing, finance, strategy, human resources, entrepreneurship, business ethics and globalisation.  

Research in Law concentrates on areas such as the business ethics, legal education and the historical impact of female lawyers. Staff have published high profile books and articles on these subjects.
