Professors in Practice An initiative bringing world-class practitioner expertise into the University.
The Business School is leveraging its excellent connections in the implementation of the Universityâ€™s new initiative Professors in Practice. Professors in Practice has been designed to recognise the expertise and experiences of senior professionals across a wide variety of disciplines and sectors, by enabling such individuals to share their skills directly with students, bringing public distinction and practical insights to the classroom. Over the last couple of months the School has confirmed the appointment of five high profile individuals from a range of backgrounds who all have senior level management experience and success in their respective fields in common. The new professors who have joined the faculty on a fixedtenure basis are Danny Griffiths, Andrew Harrison, Carl Hunter, Rupert Hoogewerf and Andrew Wright.
