Introducing new academic staff

In support of Queen’s University’s journey to secure a place in the top 100 universities in the world Queen’s University Management School has been investing in new additional academic faculty.  With the recruitment drive well under way the following staff have been appointed to the School:

 

Minmin Xi – Lecturer in Accounting

I have a background working in industry and of study in both China and the UK. My involvement in commerce was obtained when I was a management accountant working at Lenovo, Beijing. Lenovo is one of the largest computer manufacturers in the world. My role there, involved: drafting financial policy, supervising the production of financial regulations and project management.
 
The research for my Doctorates was undertaken following this at Mingde Business School, Renmin University and Cardiff Business School (CarBS). The research area, which was the chief concern of my PhDs was to investigate the effectiveness of management control systems in the context of Chinese manufacturing industries. I sought to understand how budgetary control systems are utilised in the organisational context of Chinese manufacturers at Renmin, At Cardiff I examined, specifically, Balanced Scorecard (BSC) utilisation in both the organisational and the institutional context. Throughout my research has used questionnaire survey and case study approaches, as well as structural models. 


Jong Kook Shin – Lecturer in Economics

I have just earned my PhD in Economics from University at Buffalo (aka the State University of New York at Buffalo) in 2010.
My research is concentrated in international finance, monetary aspects of open macroeconomics and financial economics, all broadly interpreted.

The current research focuses on normative and positive aspects of foreign exchange rate policies and the role of financial information in (international) asset markets.  The work-in-progress includes research concerning “Tobin tax” in connection with the role of endogenous information acquisition.    In tandem with the Tobin tax, the foreign exchange control based on ad valorem transaction tax, I study macroeconomic implications of quantity-based capital control.  Also, I study monetary policy under a model of endogenous regime switch as a result of labour market frictions. I also have a work-in-progress concerning the role of endogenous information in asset pricing.

 

Joanne Murphy – Lecturer in Management

I have a PhD from School of Business, Trinity College Dublin, an MA from the University of Ulster and a BA in Politics from QUB.

The focus of the PhD was the process of organisational change within the RUC – PSNI 1996-2003. I previously worked as a researcher for the TCD / QUB ‘Towards Richer Decision Making’ project which applied a complex adaptive systems  (CAS) framework to public sector decision making in the areas of housing and health (edited book ‘Public Management and Complexity Theory Richer Decision-Making in Public Services’ in print - Routledge).

Previously, Joanne worked in the community relations sector in NI. She continues to advise policy makers on good relations and the implementation of cultural and structural change to build better relations between divided communities.

Joanne is teaching Business Analysis (level 3) in Semester 1 and Organisations & Behaviour (level 1) in Semester 2.  Her research interests are in the areas of public sector change process, policing, community relations and CAS.  She is currently engaged in work on her book manuscript for Palgrave Macmillan ‘Policing for Peace in Northern Ireland’ (due Dec 2011).

 

Barry Quinn – Lecturer in Finance

I received my Masters in Finance from RMIT University Melbourne in 2006 and my BA(Hons) in Accounting from Queens University Belfast in 1995. I am currently completing my PhD in Finance at Queens. I spent eight years in London working in the Financial Services Industry between 1995 and 2003. My research interests include financial cooperatives, technological innovation in financial services and efficiency/productivity analysis.  My personal interests include sport, travel and traditional Irish music.  My PHD, titled “Performance factors of Irish Credit Unions” is structured around three pieces of work. Initial work will be on relative performance measurement of the Irish credit union sector with a view to identifying what determines performance differences between individual credit unions. A key determinant of deviations in performance among credit unions will be technological adoption.  My second piece of work uses the panel characteristics of the data to decompose Irish credit union productivity into scale effects, technical efficiency and technical change.  The remainder of the PhD will develop the role technology plays in driving performance differences between credit unions; identifying the aspects important for adoption and sustained diffusion within the sector.  Also analysis will be undertaken to measure the impact of technology on the risks facing credit unions

 

Niall Cullinane – Lecturer in Management

Niall Cullinane is a former research assistant at Queen’s University Management School having worked on an ESRC funded project since 2008 which assessed the impact of employee information and consultation regulations in cross-border enterprises on the island of Ireland. Prior to this he completed a PhD in Management and a Masters in Business Studies, both at NUI Galway. Primary research interests are in the area of employee voice, involvement and participation, but more broadly the field of industrial relations, human resource management and the sociology of work.

 

Stewart Smyth – Lecturer in Accounting

I have been working in education for over 10 years, having graduated from the ACCA in 1996. My professional experience covers small and medium-size accountancy practices, industry and the public sector. I was the purchasing officer at Walsall MBC housing department in the early 1990s and I also spent a year in the public sector audit department of KPMG in Reading.

I have mainly taught financial accounting in my previous employments in further and higher education in England including at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) and the University of Gloucestershire. I have a MSc. in Public Services Management from Nottingham Trent University. My PhD seeks to re-theorise the nature of accountability in the public sector, with a specific focus on social housing and stock transfers. My supervisors are Paul Brook from MMU and Lesley Catchpowle from Greenwich University and I am expecting to finish writing-up next summer (2011).

My other research interests include the application of critical realism to accounting research and the sociology of accounting information. At the IAFA conference in 2010 I was awarded Scholar of the Year for my paper on Accounting and Social Movements and 2nd prize in the doctoral research funding competition.  Beyond academia I am Leinster rugby season ticket-holder and a big fan of sixties / northern soul and mod music.

 

Hilary Downey:   Lecturer in Management                 

Education : Diploma Marketing (CIM), MA Marketing and MSc in Social Research Methods from University of Ulster (J)  PhD Queen’s University Belfast (QUMS) – Marketing- (Consumer Behaviour)

Research: Research interest stems from the domain of Consumer Culture, with a particular emphasis on Identity and Consumption projects from the context of vulnerable populations. This research focus has embraced the relatively new thinking which underpins the Transformative Consumer Research agenda, well being. This small community of around 100 international consumer researchers are pushing forward the agenda for social redress in such areas as poverty, food, race and ethnicity and social justice on a global front. As a member of the social justice track within this community, international networks and opportunities for collaboration are realized.  

I was awarded a Kellogg’s seed grant by the Association of Consumer Research for extending thesis research in disability studies. This research explored the concept of well being from the ‘disabled family’ perspective. Previous research considered an individual position and adopted a Radical Constructivist approach. The opportunity to disseminate findings from my research in new and innovative ways has been afforded by Consumer Culture Theory. The poetic form has been given serious attention in this forum and my work has been published (2010) in a collection entitled, ‘Canaries, Cornerstones and Thunderstorms,’ ISBN: 978-0-473-16696-0. The pioneer of such a movement is Professor John Sherry from the Mendoza Business School (Notre Dame, Indiana). They currently hold the title (2010) of the best business school in the US and were the runners-up last year.  

Publications: My work has been published in the Journal of Business Research, the European Journal of Marketing and Advances in Consumer Research. Other publications in the International Journal of Sociology and Social Policy demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of my current research interest.  Current submissions are to the Journal of Public Policy and Marketing and the Journal of Marketing Management. Work in progress will be targeting Marketing Theory, Sociology and Journal of Macro Marketing. 

Teaching Interests: Marketing, Consumer Behaviour, Research Methods

Queen's University Management School co-organizes Corporate Responsibility Research Conference 2010
 

After co-organizing the annual Corporate Responsibility Research Conference in Dublin, Leeds, and Belfast Queen's University Management School is taking this year’s conference to Marseille (France) together with the University of Leeds and other academic partners. The conference has evolved to reflect the current corporate environment and welcomes research from all fields of corporate responsibility and sustainability.

This year’s CRR Conference 2010 “Sustainability Management in a Diverse World” will be hosted by Euromed Management School , Marseille, and takes place on 15-17 September 2010. With the CRRC 2010 we would like to put particular emphasis on diversity in corporate responsibility and corporate sustainability. This covers both diversity as an important topic in research on corporate responsibility and sustainability as well as the diversity of topics, theories and approaches within the field of corporate responsibility and corporate sustainability research. The conference thus welcomes research from all fields and areas related to corporate responsibility and sustainability. We would particularly like to encourage submissions that touch upon diversity in corporate responsibility and sustainability from both a conceptual as well as a practical point of view.

At the same time and in order to reflect the diversity within corporate responsibility and sustainability research, we are open to a wide range of topics that include but are not limited to the following: Corporate sustainability; responsible human resource management; diversity management and CSR; sustainability indicators; companies and biodiversity; fair trade and ethical business; business ethics; CSR and sustainability in SMEs; stakeholder management; responsible consumerism and ethical consumers; sustainable entrepreneurship; and sustainable business models.

2011 Sunday Times University League Table places Queen's University Management School's Business Management and Finance and Accounting in the Top 10 in the UK
Professor Richard T Harrison, Director of Queen's University Management

Queen’s University Management School has been confirmed as a top 10 School in the UK in terms of research and education in the latest authoritative rankings from the Sunday Times.

Universities have been ranked in the recent announcement of the Sunday Times University League Table 2011.  In a comparison with the Russell Group of the top 20 research-led universities in the UK [of which Queen’s is one] the School was ranked 6th in the UK for Management and 7th= for Finance and Accounting: in these subjects it is ranked ahead of institutions such as Leeds, Manchester, Edinburgh, King’s College London, Newcastle, Liverpool, Birmingham, Southampton, and London School of Economics. 

Overall, Queen’s University Management School scored as follows:  Management was ranked 11th out of 74 management schools, and Finance and Accounting was rated 15th out of 80.  Overall Queen’s University Belfast has increased its position to 39 (from 42 last year). 

The Sunday Times compiles the guide from the latest data available and universities are ranked according to nine key performance areas to include: student satisfaction; percentage of firsts/2:1s, and dropout rates.

According to Professor Richard T Harrison, Director of Queen’s University Management School, these figures “reflect the considerable investment made by the University in new programmes and faculty.  Over the past 5 years the School has revised all of its teaching programmes and has invested in the development of new market-attuned programmes such as actuarial science, international business and business economics. To date over £10m has been invested in new additional academic faculty of world class standing, and a further investment programme of £5m in new staff is under way, to support the ambition of the School to consolidate its position as a world class management school.  The recent Sunday Times rankings are a testament to the capabilities and dedication of our staff and to the quality of our students.”

The School’s research was ranked in the Top 20 in the last Research Assessment Exercise in 2008, where 95% of its research was deemed as of an international standard and 55% of its research was rated as world leading and internationally excellent. 

Building on this investment in new staff and programmes, the School continues in its investment and is set to move next year to Riddel Hall to a state of the art new management school, with purpose-built teaching and learning facilities to support business-relevant research, postgraduate education and executive education and business development.

Rising Star Colin O'Hare wins Teaching Award

Colin O'Hare 
Having employed more non-traditional methods to engage students has won Colin O’Hare a 2010 Queen’s University
Teaching Award.  This innovative approach to teaching was employed by Colin to support the learning of students on the
BSc Actuarial Science and Risk Management programme offered by Queen’s University Management School.  Tools
developed include a range of electronic resources from the use of podcasts, to iPod video tutorials to the development
of a suite of online problem based videos and exercises.  These developments will also assist the programme’s placement
students working at a distance from the university and could in the long term be used as a platform to develop a distance
learning actuarial degree.

Feedback to these innovations has been very positive with students from the programme seeing the tools as an addition
rather than replacement for the traditional lecture. Specific comments included  “reinforcement of the material taught in
the lectures”, “video tutorials are like one-to-one tutoring without the tutor” and “with these resources you can listen in your
own time and do the examples at your own speed”  In particular  the students value the ability to see solutions explained step
by step and the addition of audio and visual recordings are a valuable resource for students when it comes round to revision
time when compared with the traditional written and printed notes.

Colin worked as an actuary for 10 years before joining Queen’s University Management School 2 ½ years ago. Having
worked in industry Colin appreciates the demands that our actuarial students will face when they start their actuarial careers;
and the development of these resources is in part designed to help students better develop their analytical processes so that
they will be able to deal with the often varied actuarial problems they will face in the workplace.

Future developments that Colin has in mind include trustee based video presentations, links with industry to better assess the
students practical abilities and to expand the current e-learning resources across the actuarial degree.  Colin is also working
with colleagues from Engineering and Pharmacy to develop mathematical resources; with the aim of bridging the widening gap
between the current A level and the standard required for university.

A Queen's academic has been named as one of the world's top enterprise educators.
Mr. David Gibson
Mr. David Gibson
David Gibson from Queen’s University Management School has been named as one of the top three enterprise educators in the world by the United States Association of Business Educators. He is the first person in Europe to receive the award.

David, from Broughshane, has been recognised for his work in introducing the ‘E-factor’ into courses at Queen’s, the UK’s Entrepreneurial University of the Year. His work has seen him introduce a model of enterprise teaching into courses not traditionally associated with enterprise, including nursing and the arts.

The award recognises the value of the model. It has already been adopted by the European Training Foundation to enhance the employability of graduates right across the EU by providing them with enterprise, business and entrepreneurial skills.

David said: “Queen’s commitment to enterprise can be seen in our pioneering model of entrepreneurship education within the curriculum. It is now embedded in 116 pathways, reaching 11,000 students across the University. This has led to over 500 students directly engaging in business activity.

“I like to emphasise that being entrepreneurial is not necessarily about making millions; instead it is about having a mindset which is geared towards making a contribution, and the skills to turn opportunity into reality.

“At Queen’s we believe it is vitally important to give students an injection of the E-factor to give them the edge in the highly competitive jobs market. There is a need to nurture the enterprising behaviour and employability of students at all levels, not only to encourage small business start-ups but also to develop a culture of enterprise and innovation.

 “It is important that students take a pro-active approach to gaining employment. This may mean putting together a portfolio of their work to show off their skills. It’s all about having the right attitude, showing a bit of creativity and cracking the art of personal branding.”

The award comes as David’s latest book The Streetwise Guide to Being Enterprising has just been published in paperback. Published by Oak Tree Press, the book identifies a generic set of skills designed to enable students to achieve success in business or their career. It has already been adopted by the UK Association of University Careers Services as a reference guide for information on enterprise and employability for graduates in today’s market.

The StreetWise Guide to Being Enterprising is based on David’s work with graduates and small businesses in helping them to achieve ‘Enterprise for Life’ skills. It is available from The Bookshop at Queen’s and from www.oaktreepress.com.

Further information on Queen’s University Management School is available online at www.qub.ac.uk/mgt/

Presenting the award, Paul Hannon, Director of Research and Education at award sponsors the National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurship (NCGE) said: “Queen's University is simply an excellent example of what we were looking for from an entrepreneurial university - strong leadership and vision, real student engagement, innovative faculty and clear evidence of the impact they have made in their local environment." Ian Robertson, Chief Executive of NCGE said: “At Queen’s entrepreneurship is evident and embedded in every part of the University, from its leadership through to its teaching and student impact. It demonstrates excellence in all areas: strong leadership, tremendous engagement with students in a diversity of learning opportunities and a clear tangible impact on staff, business and the local community.”

A more recent endowed prize was donated by the family of Brian O’Reilly one of our former students in Accounting.

We sincerely appreciate the support and endorsement of our sponsors in the work of the School and the calibre of our students and look forward to long and productive relationships in the years ahead.

On behalf of the staff of QUMS, we congratulate our students on their success.  We set very high standards in the School and our students have more than exceeded these.  They should be justifiably proud of their achievements.
