2nd ESRC/FME Fellowship awarded – this time to Bradford University School of Management

“My interest in converting to an academic career has been a long simmering one”

In October 2007 Olga Matthias joined Bradford University SchoolOlgaMatthias of Management as an ESRC/FME Fellow for a period of three years.

The Dean, Professor Arthur Francis, is delighted to have Olga join his school and during her fellowship period she will have entry onto their DBA Programme and undertake her Doctorate as part of her transition from business into academia under the terms of her Fellowship.

Olga’s area of expertise is Operations Management and she has shown interest in joining Bradford’s Operations and Information Management Group – an area where there is a real shortage in the business world.

Olga has had considerable career experience in business consulting, working for a consulting group for ten years and has also been involved in executive education covering both hard and soft skills development within client organizations and also at the consultancy’s training Centre at Sundridge Park.

It is entirely due to the joint funding from the Economic Social Research Council and the FME that this Fellowship has been made possible and there are still Fellowships available.

The Cass Business School and Bradford University School of Management are the first to benefit from the new ESRC/FME FELLOWSHIP scheme.

As quoted by Olga “her interest in converting had been a long simmering one”, and sporadically over the last five years she had made tentative steps about enquiring into obtaining a lecturer appointment, but it was upon reading the article in The Times that she made the decision to contact the Director (Mike Jones) at the FME.
