    Personal profile

    Biography

    I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and my current research interests concern the framing of action research projects for post-experience students. My research focuses on two main contexts: firstly as a business ethicist I focus both my theorteical and empirical research on the business-society intefarce. I am particularly interested in disagreement and conflict among stakeholders, particularly in contested markets such as energy and large infrastructure projects; Secondly in the internationalisation field, particularly concerning small business development. I have a number of papers in each area and have successfully supervised several doctoral students in these areas. I am especially interested in developing pedagogy that bridges theory and practice for post-experience students. As Director of the Executive MBA, which is delivered in London and in  Shanghai, I have access to a strong and growing community of senior practitioners that facilitates my research.  I am currently Director of Accreditation and this concerns continuous evaluation and development of quality standards in learning and teaching, research and impact in pursuit of the triple crown - AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA - for Aberdeen Business School.
