Tue 10th, Sep

The University of Liverpool was founded in 1881 and is the original ‘red brick’ University, named after our iconic Victoria Building, designed by Alfred Waterhouse, at the top of Brownlow Hill.  Today the University is a member of the Russell Group, a prestigious cohort of research-intensive institutions.

The University of Liverpool Management School was formed in 2002 and has since grown to support 3500 undergraduate students and over 1250 postgraduate and MBA students.  The School shares the University’s ambitions for teaching and research and our Vision is to be “a globally connected Management School whose transformative research and teaching places us at the forefront of influential leadership knowledge. This brings us together with students, business and society in learning to make a difference”.  

Our research is embedded into our teaching programmes to ensure that students are taught the latest thinking and techniques.  We encourage them to apply their learning into the real-world and support them in developing the skills they need to be successful in their future roles. 

Our internationally renowned faculty engage in research that is not only influential in their field, but that helps to shape policy and support businesses at a local level but also nationally and internationally.   At a regional level, for example, research carried out at the School has helped improve operational efficiencies in business agility and supply chains to support sustainable SME growth and develop new procurement approaches for social housing. At international level, the School’s research is supporting integrity in sport, helping to inform national strategies for rural development in South America, enhancing the lives of rural women in India, and creating a new patent index.

Whilst we strive to be globally connected, we are very committed to our civic duty as a Higher Education Institution to support and contribute to our local Liverpool community and we are delighted to be sponsoring the Chamber’s Local Hero Award at this year’s Awards Dinner.
