Warwick Business School is recognised as one of the leading research institutions in business and management. The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise positions Warwick 5th in the UK in business and management.
As of 2006, the WBS academic faculty consisted of 113 teaching staff, 60 researchers, and 15 visiting academics. All academics are members of a teaching subject group, a research centre or unit, and often of both. Each teaching subject group has a group convenor or head, and devolved group management. Each research centre has a director, and has similarly devolved management. Research centres may have a board with external representation to ensure practical relevance of research strategy. There are also two institutes which act as umbrella groups for a range of subject-specific research activities:
- Institute of Governance & Public Management
- Warwick Finance Research Institute
