Brunel Business School- Business Management Series: Social Network Analysis: Practical Applications

The Brunel Business School is dedicated to excellence in learning and is in the top 20 universities for research. This passion in the pursuit of knowledge translates into teaching that engages and inspires.


Led by Prof Kevin McMeeking and supported by Dr Ana Canhoto.
A fundamental feature of modern society is the multi-layered network of connections and applications/platforms (e.g. Facebook, Instagram, Tic Toc, Twitter, Tinder). Networks are a medium through which resources (information, funds, coordinated action) are mobilised, transferred and shared. This session will investigate how to map social networks (SN), important positions within SN (and how to improve them), and applications of SN (e.g. from finding a job or meeting your husband/wife, to tracking “super carriers” of covid-19, spotting terrorist ‘splinter cells’ and exploiting brokerage positions for entrepreneurial gain.
