Dr Kellie Vincent is appointed as Director of the Westminster Business School MBA
23 July 2015
Dr Vincent joins from Oxford Brookes University where she previously held the title of MBA Director, overseeing an AMBA re-accreditation and re-validation to merge three previously separate distance learning, full time and executive course options. The success of this combined offering is reflected in the growth of international interest in the programme, with students now able to utilise both online and on campus taught modules.
Dr Vincent's previous educational experience also includes positions at BPP, The Open University Business School as well as a number of other roles in further education. Kellie's commercial background includes marketing and operations based roles within the FMCG and consultancy sector, with her commercial career translating into her teaching and research interests.
Professor Barbara Allan, Dean of Westminster Business School, said: "Kellie is joining the Business School at an exciting time for the University and will help us focus on expanding and strengthening our research capacity across the school. The knowledge and experience that she can bring to the faculty will support this, and allow us to reiterate our professional educational excellence in the heart of the biggest European financial and business centre."
