Research at Aberdeen Business School

The main objective of research at Aberdeen Business School is to enable excellence in multidisciplinary research.

We draw on our research excellence in: Accounting and Finance, Business Management, Information Management, Law, and Politics & International Studies. These research strengths work together to develop new approaches to address societal challenges via three multidisciplinary themes and the Graduate School:

All three Themes contribute to RGU’s energy programme through our Energy Societies Research.

  • Energy Societies Research

    Energy Societies Research

    Through focussing on research, consultancy, education and training, we have the capability to both tackle the challenges and exploit the opportunities in the energy industry.
