The Department of International Management and Innovation (IMI) at Middlesex University Business School pursues a research-intensive philosophy of academic excellence in support of an exceptional student experience.
Consistent with the strategic vision of Middlesex University, IMI is committed to excellence in research: the uncovering of new knowledge is a core element of our mission.
The engagement of our staff in research, scholarship and the development of professional practice underpins the quality and relevance of our curriculum, and is vital to knowledge transfer with business and communities across the world. IMI academics subscribe to the central Humboldtian principle of the 'union of teaching and research'. The function is to advance knowledge by original and critical investigation, not just to transmit the legacy of the past or merely to teach skills.
At IMI, we bring together leading scholars from across several disciplines to explore real-world challenges that are not restricted to single subject solutions. As the largest department of its kind in the United Kingdom, IMI benefits from a truly multi-disciplinary heritage, capturing the fields of International Business, Marketing, Strategy, Cross-cultural Management/Psychology, Corporate Social Responsibility, Entrepreneurship, and Operations Management.
