UPFRONT A boost for the business school

Three new professors and $1.35 million worth of sponsorship toward new Chair of Finance will give the University of Auckland’s Business School some added intellectual grunt this year.
Last month the Bank of New Zealand announced its five-year investment in Finance Chair to promote the research and teaching of corporate finance, investment and risk management. Its aim is to improve New Zealanders’ understanding of how financial institutions in this country operate and how they affect the lives of ordinary Kiwis, according to BNZ managing director, Peter Thodey.
The Business School also announced three professorial appointments. Marie Wilson (formerly associate professor) has been made professor of management and head of department. Hugh Whittaker, who is currently professor at Doshisha University Business School in Japan, has been appointed professor of management. Taking up newly established position as professor of leadership is Brad Jackson, current director of the Centre for the Study of Leadership at Wellington’s Victoria University.
