Business & Economics Faculty Networking Reception is held on 12th of March 2011 at London Business School. Academics from a broad range of fields such as Finance, Accounting, Marketing, Operations, Economics and Strategic Management had a chance to share their personal and academic experiences in the reception.
The event started in the afternoon at the London Business School with a welcoming speech by our host, Dr. Oktay Urcan. He briefly outlined the importance of such networking meetings and mentioned that similar events for other disciplines (Science, Engineering, Social Sciences, Medicine etc.) are being scheduled.
After the introduction, Prof. Gulnur Muradoglu, from Cass Business School and an advisory board member of ABTA, gave a short speech about the significance of career planning in an academic’s life. In doing so, she emphasized how essential it is not be afraid of making bold decisions when change is needed.
The second speaker of the day was Prof. Irem Tuna, an associate professor of Accounting at LBS. She started by outlining the evolution of the broad research agenda in accounting, after which she discussed the trade-off that many academics face: quantity vs. quality in publishing.
The speech was followed by socialising and networking gatherings in the lovely backyard of LBS with warm coffee and delightful refreshments.
We would like to thank again all attendees from various universities including Oxford, Leeds, CASS, LBS, UCL and Regents
