Centre for Automotive Management

The Centre for Automotive Management at the University of Buckingham Business School was established in 2007. Our current work includes links with the International Automotive Finance Network. Our external links are managed through Colin Tourick, Professor of Practice – Automotive.

Professional / Executive Development & Training

The Centre provides education and training tailored to the needs of the downstream automotive industry and more specifically to individual companies. Read about our Certificate in Automotive Management. Unfortunately this is not available to individual applicants at present. We are happy to discuss any management or people development needs with organisations. Our experts can also be booked for information sessions, briefings and workshops related to current issues.

Consultancy & Research

The Centre participates in consultancy activity across a number of automotive sectors. Some topics are highly sensitive commercially and precautions are always taken to protect data and client confidentiality. We provide industry specific survey, research, consultancy and publication services and coordinates occasional Automotive Forums which stimulate debate and interest in topical and emerging automotive industry issues.

Our consultancy arm is willing to consider projects within our field of expertise. Look at our list of publications and surveys to establish whether or not we can help.

Publications and Surveys

The Team has a strong record of surveys and publications and a number of projects are already in progress at Buckingham.

Our associates regularly contribute chapters to books and provide topical articles to the business press and professional and technical journals. Associates also appear at industry conferences.
