Business School finalists present their PhD research in the 2013 Birmingham Three Minute Thesis competition

Posted on Wednesday 18th December 2013

This year the University of Birmingham ran a Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) competition and among the finalists were two students from Birmingham Business School.

3MT  is a research communication competition developed by the University of Queensland in 2008, in which doctoral researchers have just three minutes to deliver an engaging presentation on their thesis topic, its originality and its significance.

Research students were battling it out for a £1,000 travel bursary prize but the event was also a great opportunity for anyone interested in a postgraduate research degrees to discover more about the exciting doctoral research being carried out across the University.

Marea Sing from the Business School was the 2013 Birmingham Three Minute Thesis runner-up. She delivered her three-minute presentation explaining her PhD research on structural change, economic development and macroeconomic policy.

Mary Dawood was another Birmingham Business School finalist and here she delivers her three-minute presentation explaining her PhD research on modelling an early warning system for financial crises.
