Department of Management


The Department of Management was founded in 1989 as the “Department of Organization and Management.” Later, it was renamed the “Department of Management” in 1993. Over the years, the department has developed core competencies in management research and education with an international, and particularly, Asia and China, focus. The Department is ranked 6th worldwide based on the publication counts of Journal of International Business Studies, one of the 24 journals in the UTD Top 100 Business School Research Rankings, for the period from 1990 to 2024.

The Department comprises a team of academics with diverse ethnicities and extensive global experience, who engage in a wide range of innovative and impactful management research in business sustainability, corporate social responsibility, entrepreneurship, human capital management, international management, organisational behaviour, technology and innovation management, and strategic management.
