In this series we are asking our Academics & PhD students 5 questions, to see what research they are involved in and what advice they can give to our students. This time: Eleonora Muzzupappa, Teaching Fellow in Banking & Finance.
What research are you currently involved in?
My research interest lies in Banking and Finance. I am interested in studying the impact of regulation in competition dynamics in UK and the German banking sector on a comparative base. I am currently studying if the implementation of Basel II leads to different incentives in banks competitive behaviour, when applied to systems based on economies with different characteristics, namely Germany and the UK. I am also interested in studying the impact of the institutional environment on the CEOs compensation, and the extent to which different economies design compensations in order to attract talents.
What achievement at King’s College London are you most proud of?
I have joined the King’s Business School, and join the Banking and Finance group as the Deputy of the MSc in Banking and Finance, the most popular of the MScs the School offers. This represents a great opportunity of professional growth. It is very rewarding contributing as part of such a group in building up the reputation of our School.
What do you enjoy most about your position at King’s Business School?
Being part of a great academic community strongly research-oriented. The environment is very friendly and great deal of attention is put on the internal citizenship. As for my position I mostly enjoy working with students coming from different countries, and being enriched by their different backgrounds.
What one piece of advice would you give to incoming students (or young entrepreneurs)?
The incoming students should be proud of joining King’s Business School. King’s Business School offers a great deal of research based taught programmes and a vast range of services and facilities which make students experience one of the most exciting and complete experience. My advice is to not waste time. It is important for students to maximise their achievement by exploiting in full the great offer of the school.
What is the greatest career lesson anyone ever taught you?
It does not matter how clever you are, 90% is made of hard work.
