Room W142, Williams Building, Hendon
The Head of International Management and Innovation at Middlesex University Business School delivers his inaugural lecture.
A Journey Towards Happiness
Professor Thomas Lange will reflect on a 20 year research and publication trajectory, alongside 12 years in senior management positions in the United Kingdom, Australia and New Zealand. Commencing his scholarly journey in the early 1990s with a focus on the political economy of training, his interest in the happiness economics arena was launched some ten years later when he examined the impact of participation in on-the-job training on job satisfaction. During the past decade, this interest deepened and led to numerous publications in some of the world’s leading management, applied psychology, human resource management, entrepreneurship, and industrial relations journals.
Professor Thomas Lange joined Middlesex University Business School in 2012 and serves as professorial Chair in Economics and International Management and Head of the Department of International Management & Innovation (IMI). His previous managerial endeavours included positions as Dean and Pro Vice Chancellor at Glyndŵr University, UK (2001-2004), Research Dean at Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand (2004-2009), Dean of Bournemouth University Business School, UK (2009-2010) and Dean (with special responsibilities for Leadership & Change Management) at Curtin University, Western Australia (2010-2012). In 1997, aged 29 years, he became Britain’s youngest tenured Professor in a Business discipline at time of conferment.
