UNSW Business School’s Australian Graduate School of Management has appointed 18 UNSW academics and industry experts as AGSM Fellows.
The Fellows will put UNSW research and expertise at the forefront of the AGSM through accessible online free content, thought leadership blogs, webinar debate and participation in events.
The appointments will enhance AGSM’s international reputation for thought leadership in business.
The seconded Fellows, mainly from the world class disciplinary schools of the Business School, will be based at AGSM from January 2016 for up to three years.
Professor Julie Cogin, Director AGSM and Deputy Dean UNSW Business School, said: “We’re thrilled to have dedicated scholars and thought leaders alongside students and executive education clients.”
“AGSM prepares great people to achieve great things and it is important for our students, as well as staff and alumni, to have a direct connection to the research and expertise of our academics – and their physical presence in the building will be invaluable.”
“Internationally renowned research from world-class academics combined with expertise to disseminate knowledge in impactful ways has always been one of the defining features of the AGSM.”
The Fellows will also be part of the AGSM’s industry engagement agenda.
The initiative follows the recent launch of UNSW Business School’s Strategy 2020, which has high impact research as a key pillar, and will promote the dissemination of relevant, rigorous research and the thought leadership of post-experience management academics.
With dedicated faculty across Strategy, Accounting & Finance, Marketing, Leadership & Management and International Business, the appointments complement recent initiatives to bring UNSW Business School’s high impact research to life such as the AGSM/Unilever Distinguished Visitor Program, as well as the Business School’s Learn@Lunch series and the on-line journal BusinessThink.
The appointment of the initial wave of Fellows will be followed by a second round of appointments in 2016.
