Organisation-based research in business administration and economic geography is allowing us to develop a knowledge and understanding of enterprise which is paving the way for well balanced development of companies and society.

Industries, branches, companies and the public sector are all being studied as part of the wealth of research projects taking place at the department.

Research at the department is based on a strongly empirical tradition. This means that our researchers focus on studying how organisations, in both the private and the public sector, work within their surroundings and interact with them. This has helped our researchers to be able to build up extensive national and international networks with trade and industry and the public sector, and with researchers in their respective specialist fields.

Research takes place in four sections: Accounting, Industrial and Financial Management & Logistics, Management & Organisation and Marketing. There are also research centres: Centre for Business in Society, Centre for International Business Studies, Centre for Retailing, Centre for Regional Analysis, Centre for Tourism and Centre for Business Solutions.

The department also works in close cooperation with the Gothenburg Research Institute, which is also part of the School of Business, Economics and Law.
