International business links develop with prestigious events

Dr Emanuel Gomes, lecturer in strategy and international business at Sheffield University Management SchoolSheffield University Management School’s global reputation continues to grow, with a recent trip to Nigeria being a significant step forward in alumni relations and student recruitment.

However, this is not the first time our world-class academics and professional staff have endeavoured to build international bridges for the School’s ambitious students. Earlier in 2013, MSc Management (International Business) programme director and lecturer in strategy and international business Dr Emanuel Gomes (pictured left) invited Angolan Deputy Ambassador, Eduardo Sangueve, and Nigerian Senator Nurudeen A Usman to an organised event with this year’s cohort.

Students heard about the real economic potential of Angola and Nigeria and enjoyed a brief question and answer session with the visiting dignitaries following the talk.

Dr Gomes’ expertise were also drawn on by the Royal Institute of International Affairs, a world-leading source of independent analysis, informed debate and influential ideas based at Chatham House, London. He attended and spoke at a meeting entitled ‘Higher Education in Angola: the Importance of International Partnerships’, alongside a number of Angolan dignitaries.
