Professor Robert E. Wood joins AGSM @ UNSW Business School

The Director of the Centre for Ethical Leadership, Professor Robert Wood, has this week taken up a position at the AGSM @ UNSW Business School, Australia's leading post graduate management school in 2016.

Having recently resigned his role at the Melbourne Business School, Professor Wood will officially re-join AGSM this week, and will continue in his role here at the Centre for Ethical Leadership (CEL) at Ormond College in Melbourne, dividing his time between Melbourne and Sydney for his work.  

Professor Wood's role in the CEL is in keeping with AGSMs outstanding reputation in ethics and business, and follows the establishment in 2015 of the Professor Wanbil Lee prize for ethical leaders in business - awarded each year to a student or graduate who demonstrates active ethical practice in their workplace.

Deputy Dean and Director of AGSM, Professor Julie Cogin said; "Professor Wood will bring a wealth of experience to AGSM's extensive Executive Education business having designed and delivered programs for senior managers in many Australian and overseas corporations such as Westpac, PwC, Corrs Westgarth Chambers, Westfield (Scentre Group), Dow Chemical, and to the Hong Kong Government during the transition back to Chinese rule.

"We're thrilled to have enticed him back home and I personally look forward to working side-by-side with Bob to forge exciting new research and educational opportunities."

Professor Wood said. "The approach to management education by the leadership team at AGSM @ UNSW Business School is an ideal fit for the research and development activities of my team, which started in the Accelerated Learning Laboratory at the AGSM over 10 years ago. I am looking forward to working closely with Executive Education and MBA programs on a range of innovative research based tools and programs"

Prior to his role at MBS, Professor Wood was Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Western Australia and visiting Professor at the Kellogg School, Northwestern University. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences - Australia, the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Management; the American Psychological Association (Division 14) and the International Association of Applied Psychologists. He has served on the Executive Boards of the Academy of Social Sciences Australia and the International Association of Applied Psychology.
