Research Topic: Internationalisation of Professional Associations and Global Relevancy of their Certification

Research Interests: Globalisation in the 21st century has pushed all types of organisation to find new pathways of internationalisation for their growth strategy. The study aims to explore internationalisation of professional associations to understand how they keep their roles and products (certifications/credentials and trainings) relevant in their international labour markets.

Supervisors: Professor Daniel Muzio and Professor Ian Kirkpatrick
