ICHEM is a major research centre established in 1994 at the University of Bath, one of the highest ranked research and teaching institutions in the UK.

We are part of the School of Management, a leading Business School which provides a rich interdisciplinary base and a unique identity for our work. ICHEM brings together world class interdisciplinary scholars, prestigious visiting professors and doctoral researchers from over 25 countries. We challenge taken for granted assumptions and develop alternative strategies for sustainable higher education systems contributing to global wellbeing through inclusive economic and social development.

ICHEM strengthens the innovative capacity of higher education to contribute to global wellbeing by:

  • Building theoretical advances and empirical knowledge through world-class research on global transformation.
  • Supporting strategic change processes and working with governments, higher education institutions and international organisations to provide global consultancy, policy recommendations and leadership insights.
  • Providing space for critical engagement and the dissemination of innovative, ethical and sustainable strategies through seminars, conferences, keynotes and master classes.
  • Implementing praxis circles which bring together researchers, policy makers and leaders in global networks to co-create new knowledge.
  • Contributing to executive development and leadership programmes, including the PhD and the DBA in Higher Education Management, which constitute the largest group of managers researching higher education worldwide.
