This research seminar will explore "Evidence-based management of business schools" - Dr. Olga Ryazanova

Dr Ryazanova’s research focuses on the use of data-driven practices in business education as an industry. Global business education market generates billions of euros of revenue. According to the AACSB data, an average business school generates more than $30 million annual revenue, with the largest schools generating up to $270 million. We need business schools to work efficiently, so that they could support high quality teaching and research. Business schools are organisations that generate revenues on par with large corporations; however, management researchers often shy away from studying our own industry.
The management of business schools presents several important challenges. Managers who seek to follow evidence-based approach often find themselves missing reliable evidence on key factors that drive academic performance dimensions, such as research, teaching, and impact. In attracting, developing and retaining human capital (the key strategic resource in business school), managers lack insight into critical factors that shape academic careers.
In this talk, Dr Ryazanova will present a programme of research within the broad area of evidence-based management of business schools and will share key insights from multiple research projects that she led in this area.
