Research: Research Centres and Units - The Unit for Leadership, Harmony and Competitiveness

UNLEACH will work with members of the Management Subject Area Group (SAG) in the Department of Management Studies(DOMS) to develop detailed project proposals around the highlighted areas of research focus. There will be strategic relationships with leadership units and centres across the globe who have similar research agenda’s or who may want to join the research programme.
One of the key activities for the success of UNLEACH is access to funding other than UWI’s research fund. Hence, strategic relationships will be aimed at soliciting/accessing funding from potential authentic and authorized funding sources.
