Research and Higher Degrees Office
The Office of Research and Higher Degrees oversees the research activities and research students within the Faculty of Business and Law.
The Faculty of Business and Law at ECU is proud of its research achievements and is committed to continuing its high quality and innovative applied research. We engage collaboratively with strategic partners who provide an in-depth understanding of particular issues, to enable research academics to contribute unique expertise and research methodology. This approach ensures research in areas of relevance and the application of research results for meaningful impact in the community.
Our Faculty's four research centres offer specialised research services to specific industries and the community covering a wide range of areas from financial markets, business with Asia, e-commerce, marketing and quality management to social issues and law enforcement. The key areas of research strength and concentration are:
- Centre for Innovative Practice (CIP)
- Finance, Economics, Markets and Accounting Research Centre (FEMARC)
- Sellenger Centre for Research in Law, Justice and Social Change
- Small and Medium Enterprise Research Centre (SMERC)
Our research centres are regularly reviewed by external, independent panels and adhere to excellence in research income and publications.
Further enquiries about research opportunities of mutual benefit and problem solving in industry, commerce and government, are welcomed.
Our research courses cover a wide range of Business and Law related disciplines and offer particular expertise in:
- financial markets;
- family and family law;
- policing and investigative practices;
