Governance

Our team consists of the Director, Dr Henry Cutler, who leads a dedicated team of several research fellows. ​
​MUCHE operates within the broader organisational structure of the Faculty of Business and Economics (FBE), but is governed by the Director, Dr Henry Cutler, who reports directly to the Executive Dean of FBE.

We are supported by central university offices, including Marketing and Events, Public Relations, Human Resources, Research, and the Office of General Council. We have access to the full suite of university resources, including access to library services, electronic academic journals, specialist software and equipment.
