Business School to welcome 19 new faculty
Between now and September 2013, the Business School is delighted to announce that it will be welcoming 19 new academics to Exeter.
Our Accounting faculty is already recognised as one of the best in the UK with 5 star ratings in the national Research Assessment Exercises (RAE) for both 1996 and 2001.
It is also ranked 10th in The Times Good University Guide 2013. Gilad Livne, Professor in Accounting; Anthony Wood Lecturer in Accounting; and Fani Kalogirou, Lecturer in Accounting will be joining the existing faculty.
The Department of Economics has been ranked highly in all of the previous RAEs. This reflects the high calibre of the faculty and their contributions to both theoretical and applied economics. Within the current faculty of 30, which includes members from many countries around the world, there is expertise and international reputation in a significant number of areas of economics and econometrics. It also engages in projects with international organisations such as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the United Nations (UN) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO) and leads the newly formed Tax Administration Research Centre. The current team will be joined by Professor Shmuel Zamir, Professor Brit Grosskopf, and Professor Rajiv Sarin; Ramon Cobo-Reyes as Senior Lecturer; and Julian Neira, Kaustav Das, Luke Lindsay and Francesco Porcelli, all as Economics Lecturers.
We already have some of the world's leading finance experts here at Exeter, and links to many others worldwide. We collaborate and share our financial expertise and resources with a wide range of regional, national and international businesses. The Xfi building is home to the Centre for Finance and Investment, a leading research centre that supports an excellent range of finance programmes and postgraduate research options. New academics to join Finance as Lecturers are Pedro Barroso, Monika Tarsalewska and Lora Dimitrova.
Business and Management at Exeter is ranked 8th by the Complete University Guide 2013 and The Times Good University Guide 2013. There are five new appointments in total within the Management Studies Department and Organisation Studies Department. Professor John Powell joins Management Studies as Chair in Strategy. Professor Nicolas Forsans joins as Associate Professor in International Strategic Management, and Director of the MBA Programmes.
Organisation Studies welcomes Professor Philip Stern as Chair in Marketing; Marwa Tourky, Lecturer Marketing; and Harvey Williams as a Senior Lecturer in Human Resource Management.
Professor Robin Mason, Dean of the Business School commented: “After an intense recruitment process, I am delighted that we have managed to secure such a high calibre group of new academic staff. The Business School has ambitious plans to invest in its staff, for example growing its faculty by 40% over the next five years. This is the start of an exciting phase in its development and there will be more to come.”
