Institute of European Finance
The Institute of European Finance has a global reputation for research excellence in banking, accounting and finance. It is focused on understanding the role of finance, in its broadest sense, in addressing the environmental, social and economic challenges that the world faces.
Rhanbarth – Centre for Sustainable Regions and Economies – brings together the School’s multi-disciplinary research activities relating to inclusive and sustainable regional development, in all its forms.
Our faculty members are highly accomplished researchers, recognized nationally and internationally for their contributions to their fields. They collaborate with networks of researchers across Wales, Europe and the world. The UK Government’s most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF2021), judged 78% of our research to be world-leading (4*) or internationally excellent (3*).
