Wilson Ng, PhD (Cantab.), MBA, MA (Cantab.), CDipAF (ACCA), FHEA
I hold two adjunct roles, a Visiting Chair in Entrepreneurship & Family Business in the Entrepreneurship & Family Business Centre at Regent’s University London and, from October 2019, an Adjunct Chair of Corporate Finance at Emlyon Business School in Écully, France.
From February 2012 to January 2019, I held a personal chair as Professor in Entrepreneurship & Innovation Studies at the University of Roehampton London. At Roehampton, apart from my principal research and teaching roles, I fulfilled a number of administrative appointments in the University as well as at the Business School where I was located.
At the University level, I was an elected member of the University Senate for two consecutive periods of three years each. At the Business School, I was also appointed to a number of roles. For example, I headed up the largest teaching and research group in Enterprise, Marketing, and Digital Media, and I was Acting Research Lead of the School. In these roles I mentored several Business School colleagues in various areas of research, in particular early-career researchers.
Additionally, I founded the organizing creativity research group, ProCreate, where I placed my personal, external research funding. I won this funding, amounting to €220,000 over my career at Roehampton, from external research bodies in the UK and Europe, and from my consulting work for businesses in the European Union, including technology start-ups mentioned below which I co-founded.
For most of my eight years at Roehampton, I sat on a number of research and administration committees in the Business School, including the School’s Research Student Review Board. This Board oversees the research development and examination of doctoral students.
In 2016, following an internal restructuring of the Business School, I co-led its Economics and Finance Research Cluster (with the School’s Economics Professor) and mentored three early-career research colleagues.
