First annual Universitas 21 Doctoral Research Consortium

Birmingham Business School Doctoral Researchers at the first Universitas 21 Doctoral Research Consortium in Management (DRC) at the University of Connecticut. 


Five doctoral researchers from the Business School along with the Programme Director attended the the first annual Universitas 21 DRC in April 2012. Universitas 21 is an international network of 23 leading research-intensive universities in fifteen countries:  The U21 DRC at the University of Connecticut provided a global learning and research platform aimed at the next generation of intellectual leaders in the fields of business, commerce and economics and it was important that Birmingham PGRs were represented at this prestigious event. 

The conference gave Birmingham Business School PGRs the opportunity to present their work in a supportive environment and to develop links with other U21 researchers and academics. Participation in the U21 DRCB is in line with  the internationalisation of the Doctoral programmes and the research community within the Business School. The event was a great success and was  very enjoyable. The University of Connecticut  School  of Business made everyone very welcome.
