The Business History Unit

The Business History Unit was the first research centre of its kind in Europe. Founded in 1978, and sponsored by the Economic History Department, its primary aim is to promote work in all aspects of the field, capitalising on its reputation and status as an international centre.

The BHU's mission is to encourage research in business history, provide a forum for intellectual exchange via its regular seminars and occasional conferences, and stimulate comparative and inter-disciplinary work though its visitor programme.  

While BHU's central concern is with the micro-economic analysis of business behaviour and corporate activity, it has extended its reach to encompass the study of business in the wider economic, social and political environment.
