School of Management Media Spotlight – June 2018

It is becoming increasingly important to spread news about the Faculty of Business and Law’s applied research to a wider range of outlets than just academic journal articles as industry and the general public do not read these. Promoting our research in the market place can improve interactions and communication with organisations, be them government, public, private sector or not-for-profit.

Sources for communicating your research might include newspaper articles (print and online), radio or TV interviews, articles in professional electronic media (e.g. The Conversation) and industry events or presentations.

The School of Management houses a number of expert commentators. Training is provided to academics who would like to become an expert commentator and the School encourages your participation to not only promote your public profile, but also the Faculty as a research hub.

Below is a list of academics within the School who have contributed to the various media outlets in 2018 so far.
