Research in the School of Marketing
Special Interest Groups & Research Centres
There are a number of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and Research Centres operating in the School of Marketing.
The Business Society Sustainability Research Centre is a designated DIT research centre committed to critical and creative analysis and reflection on the impacts of business on the wider society and the impact of the wider society on business. Central to these impacts is the theme of sustainability understood not only in its ecological sense but also in the sense of the ability of business to maintain ethical and political legitimacy through creating value in the long-term. The centre engages in a diversity of analytical perspectives and encourages an iterative dialogue between academics, practitioners and policy-makers.

This engagement programme is underpinned by studies of entrepreneurship and the entrepreneurship opportunity in a range of minority contexts.
