Launch of the NBS Research Seminar Series
Submitted by Dr Sandy MacDonald
The Northampton Business School (NBS) have announced dates for their Research Seminar series, which will run during term time for staff and doctoral students. The first seminar will be held on 7th October, at 1pm (room to be confirmed), with Dr Shaowei He, Director of Centre for China and Emerging Countries (CEEC) speaking on “Chinese acquisitions in developed countries and capability upgrading in their acquired firms.” Watch this post for further details.
With the aim to promote research within NBS and to disseminate findings to staff and PhD students, the series also encourages staff to meet PhD students and to support them in the early stages of their academic careers. The atmosphere is informal and all are welcome. Tea and coffee are made available and the seminars usually last for an hour. Please get in touch with Sandy MacDonald if you have some research you are keen to publicise through this forum.
