International Faculty and Research
The Management School at Sheffield truly consists of international faculty members. Around 40% of its academics have an international background and are from overseas. Furthermore a significant number of academic researchers in the School (although of UK origin) speak several international languages and publish work of an international nature. International research at the School focuses on International Human Resource Management, Doing Business in Emerging Economies, International Strategic Alliances, International Business and Managing Multinational Enterprises, Export Marketing and International Consumer Research.

The School has recently been awarded funding under the UK-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) from The British Council. The funding will support a partnership with the Indian Institute of Science (IIS) which will include participation in UK-India Staff Exchange. The School is delighted that Dr Anjula Gurtoo of IIS will be collaborating on a range of research projects tackling the informal economy.
The Management School also has a Visiting Scholar Scheme and in recent years several academics have been accommodated in Sheffield for visits of short and long term durations. These include academic researchers in the area of Work Psychology, International Business, Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Finance.
