Congratulations to PhD student Ebtesam Al-Alawi who has received the Best Developmental Paper Award at the British Academy of Management (BAM) 2013 conference, which was held at the Aintree Racecourse in Liverpool this September. The theme for the BAM2013 conference was “Managing to Make a Difference” with papers invited to consider the wider implications of management.
Ebtesam’s paper ‘Teams in Units: Team Turnover and Team Effectiveness Outcomes’, co-authored with Ebtesam’s PhD supervisors Dr Ana-Cristina Costa and Dr. Lamea Tahoo, was submitted under the Organisational Psychology Track. It describes the theoretical framework and study design of Ebtesam’s PhD project on the Impact of collective turnover on performance outcomes in Healthcare Teams. Although Ebtesam’s project is currently at the stage of date collection, Brunel Business School are delighted that it has already received this prestigious recognition.
Ebtesam is one of Brunel Business School’s PhD students from Ahlia University. Since 2007 Brunel Business School has been offering a PhD without residence programme at Ahlia University, Kingdom of Bahrain with students being awarded by Brunel University. The PhD without residence programme is a unique opportunity and represents the chance for students to be a part of Brunel Business School, while studying in the Middle East.
