PhD students present their research at the annual King's Business School Doctoral Research Symposium
PhD students will present their findings at the annual King’s Business School Doctoral Research Symposium today and tomorrow.
The forum provides an opportunity for postgraduate students to learn what their colleagues are researching and gain feedback from academics across a range of specialisms.
The range of research topics addresses some of the most important issues and challenges facing businesses and policy-makers in the UK and globally with papers covering; migration and human capital; techniques for assessing education quality and compensation, governance, regulation and competition in the banking sector.
New technology and tools are reflected in research on digital influencers and virtual reality, cloud computing and digital gaming. There are additional papers on value creation in new growth firms, sustainability, innovation collaboration, conflicts of interest in M&A, and management decision-making in a multilingual context all of which address key questions faced by organisational leaders and entrepreneurs.
Comments Professor Jon Hindmarsh, Associate Dean (Doctoral Studies) at King’s Business School: “I am really proud of the quality and range of the papers being presented. The subject matter draws on issues and experiences from across the UK, to Europe, to China and South America and sectors from finance and banking, to health and policing and the cultural industries. The different perspectives that our community of academics will bring to bear on these topics will generate some fascinating conversations and propose promising new lines of thinking for our doctoral researchers to explore."
