Building your research profile and career planning

In response to the government’s recent decision to move to the ‘delay’ phase of the Covid-19 action plan, BAM face-to-face events scheduled from March-May have been postponed until further notice. Where possible, we are looking at other alternatives such as remote participation. We are closely monitoring the situation and will provide updates as the situation develops.



This workshop is designed to support PhD students and early-career researchers’ academic career planning. We have created the event to discuss the activities and values that guide one's academic career, as well as the risks and challenges this may entail.

We have bought together leading scholars in the field of management to discuss matters related to university Internal activities, networking and social media, self-care and looking after others.The guest speakers will also facilitate breakout sessions to enable participants to explore such areas and answer their concerns. 



Postponed until further notice
