We develop knowledge and tools on product/service development, design thinking & management and aim for innovative and sustainable industrial activities.
Antwerp Management School wants to generate knowledge that contributes to science and society through scientific research. This knowledge is also used to ensure that AMS courses are founded on the current state of affairs in scientific research. The mission of our research department is:
“Being a Belgian and international reference for excellent management research, as a source of inspiration for professionals as well as academic staff, in fields of expertise that fit within a socially responsible business school.”
Our expertise centers are our main providers of research projects and publications. They help shape the main disciplines offered at Antwerp Management School. Some of our former Competence Centers have merged and have been reoriented to help them grow into very complete domains of expertise.
We research and share knowledge on business/IT alignment and value creation by investing in IT.
We research the future of our labor organization. Together with our partners we create a sustainable vision on HRM, work, careers and organizations. With the SD Worx Chair “Next Generation Work”, we formulate new, well-founded and hands-on solutions for the HR challenges of today.
We develop the capacity of organizations and people to evolve to authentic and shared leadership through research and knowledge sharing.
The knowledge communities at Antwerp Management School are geared towards a more specific subject and provide research and education in that field. Just as transversal research lines, the knowledge networks also support the expertise centers. For example, Corporate Social Responsibility provides a significant knowledge contribution to the expertise center Business Design & Innovation.
We develop solutions and offer support to small and medium-sized (family) businesses through research and knowledge sharing.
We support the social mission of organizations with research and education. We stimulate CSR and create a motive for sustainable innovation.
We focus on the creative sector. Our goal is research and knowledge sharing on creativity & entrepreneurship.
Knowledge Community International business shares and promotes knowledge and practices for international business and mutual understanding.
