Inter-departmental Research Workshops

Since 2015-16, CU Business School organizes a series of inter-departmental research workshops last Fridays every month.  These workshops aim at promoting active research environment within the Faculty, increasing interaction among faculty to share research ideas and have potential collaboration, and having social interaction for all staff of the Faculty. 

We grouped the departments into two different groups:

  • Group A consists of ACY, FIN, Eco of DSE, Real Estate of SHTM; and
  • Group B consists IS/OM of DSE and Hospitality of SHTM.

The two groups would meet on alternate months. Three faculties from different departments in each group would present each time.  Each presentation would last for 20 minutes.

Upcoming workshop will be scheduled at 3:30 p.m. on Friday, 31 March 2017 in The Gastronomy Club at 5/F, CYT.  Presenters and topics are:
