A new four-part series that puts UNSW Business School’s rising stars and their new ideas in the spotlight.

UNSW Business School is thrilled to launch the inaugural BusinessThink Rising Stars Webinar Series in August 2020.

This four-part series aims to put the business school’s rising stars and their new ideas in the spotlight. Our new generation of academic thought leaders engages with the big themes and challenges of our time. Hosted and championed by Frederik Anseel, Associate Dean Research, this webinar series provides you with a unique opportunity to learn about those emerging ideas that business and society will be talking about in the next years.

You’ll learn about a COVID-map of social progress in Australia, an economist’s view of child labor in refugee camps, a financial analysis of why companies donate following natural disasters, and how companies should and should not use social media when hiring. We hope you will join us to explore this world of exciting and groundbreaking research.

See below for more information on each webinar topic, the researcher(s) and how to sign up.
