WA Business Faculties’ Research Student Festival
Proudly hosted by the School of Management at Curtin University
The School of Management’s Research and Innovation Advisory Committee (RIAC) held the inaugural WA Business Faculties’ Research Student Festival at Curtin Perth on Wednesday 6 and Thursday 7 February 2019.
The Festival, attended by 45 participants from across the four WA universities business faculties, was a series of workshops relevant to research students and aimed to celebrate their research journey. Our Dean of Research, Professor Kirsten Holmes opened the event and was followed by two days of workshops run by 28 academics from the School of Management and colleagues from Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University, the University of Notre Dame and the University of Western Australia.
As well as students networking during the workshops, they also attended a sundowner event on the Wednesday evening which was a lot of fun and had a real buzz. The Curtin Business School was able to showcase its collegial, collaborative spirit while demonstrating the world-class range of business research skills on offer in WA.
RIAC is most grateful to Professors Kirsten Holmes and Garry Allison for providing their time and funding; the hugely successful event would not have been possible without their support.
