In addition to the taught modules online, this year Brunel Business School is offering our students a series of free on-campus Business and Management sessions (BMS).  These BMS sessions cover a variety of business and management topics, to give our students the extra on-campus experiences. If you are planning to come to the campus, have a look at the exciting topics below. You can register and come to any sessions that you find interesting and relevant. Respecting the rule of social distancing, space is limited to approx. 60 students per session. So sign up now and grab your space for a knowledge booster in Term 1. We look forward to seeing you at the Eastern Gateway Building Auditorium!


Led by Dr Ozlem Arda and supported by Dr Grigorios Theodosopoulos and Dr Asieh Tabaghdehi. 

Defining leadership is becoming more and more complicated, and it is like searching in the fog. We all have some ideas and perceptions about what "leadership" is. Still, it is not always possible to agree on a general definition of leadership. This matters because if we cannot agree on what leadership is, then we do not know what to expect from a leader. 
Workforces are becoming more diverse, more collaborative and more competitive. As a result, traditional leadership methods are becoming irrelevant. People are no more looking for just work, they are looking to make a difference and feel as if they matter in the larger scheme of things. This need is creating leaders at every level in organisations, with leadership roles flowing from person to person. Therefore, let's look at what are the myths of leadership and find out a working definition for leadership which is one of the most critical mechanisms in management and organisations domain.
