The Department of Management and Leadership is based at our Jordanstown campus and is one of six departments within the Ulster University Business School.

Within Management and Leadership, our aim is to deliver business relevant research that continues to inform and enhance teaching and is reflected in our range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. 

Our courses enable participants - whether new to the world of business or already in managerial positions - to develop and apply their skills and make a meaningful contribution to the development of business in Northern Ireland and further afield.  

Impact of experience

Our graduates occupy senior positions globally and our courses are designed to make a real impact.  

For example, organisations have attributed savings of over £1 million to the project work undertaken by students as part of their postgraduate study with us.

Our lecturers are professionally qualified and bring significant managerial experience to their academic work.  We combine the best of academic knowledge and a supportive student environment with real world experience and have always placed a premium on building strong partnerships with industry.

The Business School was ranked 7th in the UK for the impact of our research (REF 2014).  

In the Department, our academics lead the way in operations and supply chain management research and in human resource management and leadership work. 

We are actively involved in collaborative work with business through consultancy, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), FUSION projects and Innovation Vouchers, for example. 


Many of our courses are accredited by professional bodies such as the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the Institute of Chartered Secretaries and Administrators (ICSA), the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) and the Institute of Continuous Improvement in the Public Sector (ICIPS).

Our work contributes to an exciting and dynamic environment that in turn creates real benefits for our students, the economy and society.
