Oxford University Press Bryman and Bell Prize

School of Management students Christa Neumann (MSc in Human Resource Management and Consulting) and Mr Joseph Kibirige (MSc in Management with Marketing) have been selected as the winners of the Oxford University Press Bryman & Bell Prize 2013. 

This prize honours the students’ outstanding research work, conducted during the Methods of Management Research unit, and presented in their dissertation proposals.

Course convenor Dr Jens Roehrich said:

“I am delighted that Christa and Joseph follow in the footsteps of last year’s OUP Bryman and Bell Prize winners. Their research proposals presented an interesting dissertation research focus, but also offered a critical reflection on extant literature sources and a well-developed method section. I am certain that their research dissertations will reflect the same high achievements of management research skills.”
