Dr Fragkiskos Filippaios, Reader in International Business at Kent Business School, has been appointed Faculty Associate Dean for Graduate Studies for a three year term.
The post of Associate Dean (Graduate Studies) carries a broad responsibility for Graduate Studies (taught and research) within the Faculty of Social Sciences. The role is a key link between the faculty’s schools and the University’s strategic initiatives in relation to graduate education and is responsible for leading the strategic development of graduate education in academic schools and centres across all campuses within the faculty.
Though Fragkiskos begins his new role with immediate effect, he will continue to dedicate a significant portion of time to his research activities and contribute to Kent Business School‘s teaching by delivering the International Business module on The Kent MBA Programme and maintain his PhD supervisions.
“I really look forward to working together with colleagues across the Faculty of Social Sciences. My aim is to develop a strong postgraduate offering.
“The development of our postgraduate portfolio, both in taught and research programmes, ensuring high employability of our graduates and fostering the postgraduate research environment through the efficient and effective allocation of the Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships are my key priorities.
“I also look forward to working with colleagues across the South East Network of Social Sciences, the Eastern Academic Research Consortium and the South East Doctoral Training Centre in developing strong training and a fostering environment for our research students. I hope my new role will allow me to help Kent Business School develop from a different position, providing input as a critical friend.“– Dr Fragkiskos Fillipaios
