MORROW, Ga -- Dr. Leon Prieto, Assistant Professor of Management at Clayton State University, has recently been appointed to serve as a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Stellenbosch Business School (USB) located near Cape town, South Africa. The research fellowship runs from March 2016 to February 2019.
USB was named the top business school in South Africa by the Professional Management Review. In 2012, it became the only business school in Africa to earn triple accreditation (AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA). Visiting Research Fellows are regarded as a strategic asset to strengthen and extend the position of USB, and they appoint research associates from scholars from around the world to work with USB researchers in order to enhance the School's academic, learning and research environment.
According to Dr. Prieto, "It has always been a dream of mine to work with a university in the continent of Africa. I am very much in touch with my African heritage, and I intend to visit South Africa in the near future and work with their faculty and conduct research in Black Management and Entrepreneurship History, and uncover the contributions made by the people of South Africa to Entrepreneurship and Management Thought".
