A time to build

November 1st, 2010

Carl Fey, Professor of International Business, is to be the new Dean of the Nottingham University Business School China. He takes over from Prof Chris O’Brien, who has retired after 42 years with the University.

Prof Fey, who has also been appointed as the new Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at The University of Nottingham Ningbo, China, is currently with the Stockholm School of Economics where he helped establish a branch campus in Russia.

His areas of expertise include foreign market entry, leadership, teamwork and organisational culture, change management and strategic innovation. Prof Fey has directed and taught on many different executive programs, including both company-specific training programs and teaching on MBA and EMBA programs.

“It is now time to build and move forward, particularly into the spheres of executive education and to push some additional focus on research,” he said. “I want to make sure that the world knows about all the great things that are happening here in the Business School at The University of Nottingham Ningbo, China.

“This is the only truly English-language university in China and it offers great opportunities for exchange students from around the world. We need to focus increasingly on teaching people how to think. A lot of what we teach at Nottingham helps companies to be more efficient and ensures that when our students take up a job they are productive from day one.”

The Nottingham University Business School is a leading centre for management education. The University’s Business School in Ningbo is home to nearly 3,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students. It provides a host of degree courses aimed at developing skills in management as well as in qualitative and quantitative analysis, critical thinking, information technology, team working and lifelong learning.

Prof Fey is one of the world’s leading experts on Russian management and organisation. His research focuses on international aspects of organisational culture and effectiveness, leadership, strategic human resource management, foreign market entry, and knowledge transfer. Much of his research focuses on how one needs to adapt management theory and practice for success in the transforming economies of Russia and China. He has travelled and worked extensively in both countries, and speaks English, Swedish, Russian, and German.
