ICMGR aims to bridge academic and professional knowledge on international management and governance. It embraces a multi-disciplinary approach to research and bridges across subject groups at Edinburgh Napier. The Centre’s key themes are as follows:
  • Accountability and audit
  • Corporate governance (including executive compensation)
  • Corporate social responsibility (CSR) and economic governance 
  • Critical labour market studies 
  • Debt contracting
  • Disclosures and transparency in private and public entities
  • Ethics, business ethics, ethical finance/investment, and Islamic finance/investment
  • Financial regulation
  • HRM, HRD & strategy
  • Leadership, SMEs & entrepreneurship
We are in the process of building a world class community of practice, including hosting visiting scholars and practitioners.

The Centre aims to assist with the implementation of Edinburgh Napier’s Strategy 2020: Building Success.
ICMGR will do this by building the quality of academic research outputs, securing greater levels of research funding, enhancing both public engagement and the impact of our research, and building a community of world class visiting scholars and practitioners.
The Centre also works closely with the Early Career Researchers (ECR) network within the Business School. Research clinics, workshops, seminars and other events will be announced through the ICMGR’s Facebook.
We welcome opportunities to host postgraduate researchers (PGRs) from around the world. If you are interested in pursuing a PhD, especially one with a multi-disciplinary focus, contact Professor Maura Sheehan (m.sheehan@napier.ac.uk), Dr Marizah Minhat (m.minhat@napier.ac.uk) or Dr Kenny Crossan (k.crossan@napier.ac.uk) (PhD Programme Leader) who will be happy to discuss the benefits of studying for your PhD at Edinburgh Napier University.
