The Coller School of Management's broad range of institutes, centers and chairs provide the School’s scholars with a framework for promoting research initiatives and fostering collaboration on designated topics of interest. Our centers and institutes cover a broad range of topics and agendas: information systems, strategic management, accounting, real estate, and high-tech, global business, entrepreneurship, insurance, and healthcare systems.  


Additionally, the activities and platforms conducted by the School's centers and institutes – calls for papers, grants, professional clubs, research catalogues – are an important source of support for new studies, paradigms and research agendas, sharing their output with the business community. They create opportunities for field-academia dialogue, allowing academia and business to keep in tune with each other and learn from each other's perspective.


Chairs are awarded to individual staff members in recognition of their work in a particular academic field.
