Socio-Management

The Stirling Institute for Socio-Management is home to a broad portfolio of research interests and disciplines. Our research and knowledge exchange activities range from academic blue skies thinking and international research networks to Knowledge Transfer Partnership projects, advisory work for governments and NGOs, contract research for industry bodies and PhD projects with arts organisations. What unites all these activities is an approach to management and business that is critical in the broadest sense, taking in:

  • public interest, for example through our leading edge Public Sector MBA and in our work on socio-economic development;robust criticism of corporate responsibility and malpractice, for example the drinks industry's role in binge drinking and the tobacco industry's continuing influence on the health of its customers;
  • the strengthening of social and health interventions with business tools through social marketing;
  • voluble, evidence-based warnings about society's descent into universal surveillance;
  • appreciation of the dynamic relationships between work, household, family, community and society;
  • how people's success and experience in the workplace is facilitated and constrained by personal attributes such professional identities, gender or class;
  • how social and cultural enterprises can cope with business challenges without surrendering their not-for-profit aims or demotivating their staff.
