Inspiring ideas and encouraging collaboration

general shot at phd research day 2016The fifth Annual PhD Research Day gives our students from different levels and disciplines an opportunity to interact and exchange ideas for their research.

“It is a great opportunity for the students to showcase their research to the entire business school community. By exposing the students to a wider audience, they improve their work through feedback from diverse perspectives. Furthermore, the event inspires them to embark on fresh research ideas and encourage collaboration across departments,” said Sumit Agarwal, Vice-Dean (PhD and Research) and Low Tuck Kwong Professor.

At the heart of the event is the poster competition held in the MRB atrium where students (second year and above) get to present a visual summary of their research topic in a poster, including the methodology and key findings. Judged by a committee of six faculty members, the posters are assessed based on factors such as originality of the research and the ability to connect to a wider audience.

There are also morning sessions where nominated first-year students present their research works in various seminar rooms.
