‘The Cork University Business School has a range of research strengths which informs the University’s key research thematic area of Financial & Business Services. The School’s traditional focus, especially in its Research Centres, in areas such as Financial and Regulatory Technologies for Financial Services, Co-operative Studies, Food Business and other research areas including Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Competitiveness and Human Resources demonstrate that the School’s research impacts across the spectrum of Financial and Business Services. As Dean of CUBS, I am delighted to support on-going interdisciplinary research and industry and business collaboration in this key area.’
