The SMU Research Center was launched in September 2019.

The Center aims at building bridges between the MSB and its sister school, MedTech, the school of engineering and reflects university’s leitmotiv “when business meets technology”. Through strengthening interactions between SMU faculty, visiting scholars, students, and industry partners, the SMU Research Center aims at enhancing research opportunities, academic excellence, real-world problem solving, as well as knowledge creation and dissemination.

SMU Research Center operates through 4 Areas of Advance that are intertwined with areas of education at MSB and MedTech to promote an interdisciplinary approach. While our Schools provide a solid base of knowledge and expertise, our Areas of Advance – all of which have the goal of sustainable development at their core – target complex societal and economic challenges.

SMU Research Center’s Areas of Advance:

  • Digital Future
  • Energy and Sustainability
  • Entrepreneurship, Strategy and Innovation
  • Public Affairs, Economy and Society
