University Of Essex, Essex Business School – Professor Nigel Pye

Thursday, 05 May 2016 00:00

The days of academics living in metaphorical ivory towers are long gone (well mostly!). Universities need to remain relevant, current and useful to society and are always on the look out for opportunities to get involved with the local (and wider) community. Universities, broadly speaking, have two principle functions, to generate and to disseminate knowledge. So what does this mean for the University of Essex and the businesses in Essex and South Suffolk? For a start, the University contributes nearly half a billion pounds to the local economy. But what can the University of Essex do for you? Well, apart from providing you with excellent graduate and postgraduate students, how about getting you ahead of the competition by conducting leading edge research on your behalf. How about getting you a new, highly trained employee and pay 60% of their salary for a year? Or how about developing you and your team through executive education?

Essex University is consistently in the UK top 20 for research excellence and is seeking to help local business benefit from all that generated knowledge. Our speaker this week, Professor Nigel Pye, Professor of Business and Management & MBA Director of Essex Business School, will give you an overview of what the University of Essex can do for you.
