Research is vital to the Amsterdam Business School (ABS) and, consistent with our mission, we aim to provide research-based education.

Focal areas

At the ABS we publish internationally-recognised research across the broad spectrum of business disciplines, we have areas of excellence, and expose our students to relevant academic research in their programmes. We also encourage all applied research to be available to and inform practitioners through professional journal outputs and lectures.

Since 2020 we have 4 focal areas, in line with the UN Sustainable Development goals and our own research strengths.
