The School of Management organises activities and builds relationships around the concept of responsible enterprise.
Responsible enterprise informs teaching and research about:
- managing within organisations
- the impact of human enterprise on the environment
- the interaction between forms of investment and social and organisational impact
- the need to foster creativity and development.
Accountability, governance, sustainability and ethics are key to the understanding of and engagement with a wide variety of organisations – private, public and social.
The School of Management has won major grants to undertake research and develop research centres. The research findings are reported in top international journals, which means the School is influential in shaping policy and practice.
The School’s world-class research makes a significant contribution to teaching at St Andrews. School staff work as a supportive community to ensure that students think and engage critically with subject matter, both practical and theoretical, developing their abilities and their skills in analysis, synthesis, evaluation and application.
