Welcome Week at the Business School is packed full of activities that will help you get to know the city of Edinburgh and your classmates better. Here are my favourite bits!
How should leaders lead in today’s ever changing society? Should there be more emphasis on follower-ship than leadership? What is the likelihood of there being a robot leader in the future? These were just some of the themes discussed at the TEDx conference I attended.
Our MSc Management students did some amazing work with their tourism clients in Gran Canaria. Find out about the brief they were given and how they got on when they travelled from Edinburgh to Gran Canaria to meet with their clients and present their findings.
We were delighted to invite a winning group of MSc International Business and Emerging Market students to Colombia to meet the clients they had been working with via skype and phone on consulting projects.
Great companies, interesting talks and time to explore a new European city.
What does success look like to a group of MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation students? This is a question they were asked by a London-based start-up on a recent trek to the city. There were many answers – but these 3 themes emerged.
Having just returned from the trek to London, I can tell you the experience was extremely valuable and enjoyable. The MSc Entrepreneurship and Innovation trek consisted of four visits to separate companies to discuss topics related to our programme at the University of Edinburgh Business School, including innovation practices within these companies, entrepreneurial challenges, company culture, and venture creation.
If you have never visited Edinburgh before, there are some great social media accounts that you can follow to help you get to know the city. The diversity of Edinburgh’s architecture, cultures and history makes for some spectacular photo opportunities. Here are some of our favourite Edinburgh Instagrammers who capture the beauty of the city perfectly in their snaps.
Last year, Marie Aldebert, from France, graduated from the Business School, adding a Masters in Management to her academic achievements.
We caught up with her to find out more about her year at the school, the best thing about living in the UK, and what surprised her most about the Business School experience.
We caught up with Wendy Loretto to find out more about her research into equality and diversity, her priorities for the Business School, and as one of the few female Business School Deans, what has inspired her to succeed throughout her career?
