Professor Davide Ravasi, Director, UCL School of Management

@UCL’s School of Management is delighted to announce the appointment of its new Director, Professor Davide Ravasi. Currently the School’s Head of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, he will take on leadership of the School in July 2021. The School’s current Director, Professor Bert de Reyck, now leaves UCL to take up a new role as Dean of the Lee Kong Chian School of Business at Singapore Management University.

Davide has been a Professor at the UCL School of Management since 2018, having previously worked at the Cass Business School in London. In his time as Head of the Strategy and Entrepreneurship research group and the MRes & PhD Programme Director, he has expanded his research group, supported the development and research efforts of junior colleagues, and created further opportunities for close interaction between students and faculty. Davide’s research focuses primarily on the interrelations between organisational identity, culture, and strategy in times of change.

Professor Bert de Reyck has spent nearly 13 years as the Director of the UCL School of Management, exceeding the usual maximum term length of 10 years. He was formally appointed to the role in 2009, when the UCL School of Management was still called the Department of Management Science and Innovation, becoming the Founding Director of the UCL School of Management in 2015. His term was originally extended in order to support the School in reaching several key long-term milestones, including the recent opening of a new learning space on Level 50 of One Canada Square.

Professor Ravasi said: “I am honored to take up Directorship of the UCL School of Management. Bert has set us on an extraordinarily successful course on all fronts and my main priority is to uphold the high standards of professionalism, enthusiasm, and dedication associated with the School. In my time as Director, I hope to help the School contribute to important, public conversations around the dramatic transformations currently underway in the business community and in the wider world.”

Professor de Reyck said: “Having been with the School since its foundation, I leave in the certainty that it is in good hands and has a secure future. Our student numbers and revenues have continued to grow year-on-year and our expanded physical presence at the heart of the City of London will ensure that we can reach even more people in the coming years. As an excellent leader who is well-liked by everyone, Davide is extremely well-placed to carry the School through new challenges.”

Dr Michael Spence, President and Provost of UCL, said: “We are very pleased to appoint Davide to his new role at the head of the School of Management. His strong record as both an educator and scholar and his awareness of the challenges faced by businesses in times of change make him a natural choice for the role. I am excited to begin working with him and wish him a smooth transition. I would also like to thank Professor De Reyck for his dedication over the past 13 years as he has taken the UCL School of Management from its early beginnings to establishing it as a leading business school in the UK.”

We thought it would be helpful to explain how we tier our latest education news content and how you can get involved and understand how you can read the latest daily Further Education news and how we structure our FE Week of content:

Main Features

Our main features are exclusive and are thought leadership articles and blue sky thinking with experts writing peer to peer news articles about the future of education and the future of work. The focus is solution led thought leadership, sharing best practice, innovation and emerging strategy. These are often articles about the future of education and the future of work, they often then create future education news articles. We limit our main features to a maximum of 20 per week, as they are often about new concepts and new thought processes. Our main features are also exclusive articles responding to the latest education news, maybe an insight from an expert into a policy announcement or response to an education think tank report or a white paper.

FE Voices

FE Voices was originally set up as a section on FE News to give a voice back to the sector. As we now have over 3,000 newsrooms and contributors, FE Voices are usually thought leadership articles, they don’t necessarily have to be exclusive, but usually are, they are slightly shorter than Main Features. FE Voices can include more mixed media with the Further Education News articles, such as embedded podcasts and videos. Our sector response articles asking for different comments and opinions to education policy announcements or responding to a report of white paper are usually held in the FE Voices section. If we have a live podcast in an evening or a radio show such as SkillsWorldLive radio show, the next morning we place the FE podcast recording in the FE Voices section.

Sector News

In sector news we have a blend of content from Press Releases, education resources, reports, education research, white papers from a range of contributors. We have a lot of positive education news articles from colleges, awarding organisations and Apprenticeship Training Providers, press releases from DfE to Think Tanks giving the overview of a report, through to helpful resources to help you with delivering education strategies to your learners and students.

Podcasts

We have a range of education podcasts on FE News, from hour long full production FE podcasts such as SkillsWorldLive in conjunction with the Federation of Awarding Bodies, to weekly podcasts from experts and thought leaders, providing advice and guidance to leaders. FE News also record podcasts at conferences and events, giving you one on one podcasts with education and skills experts on the latest strategies and developments.

We have over 150 education podcasts on FE News, ranging from EdTech podcasts with experts discussing Education 4.0 and how technology is complimenting and transforming education, to podcasts with experts discussing education research, the future of work, how to develop skills systems for jobs of the future to interviews with the Apprenticeship and Skills Minister.

We record our own exclusive FE News podcasts, work in conjunction with sector partners such as FAB to create weekly podcasts and daily education podcasts, through to working with sector leaders creating exclusive education news podcasts.

Education Video Interviews

FE News have over 700 FE Video interviews and have been recording education video interviews with experts for over 12 years. These are usually vox pop video interviews with experts across education and work, discussing blue sky thinking ideas and views about the future of education and work.

Events

FE News has a free events calendar to check out the latest conferences, webinars and events to keep up to date with the latest education news and strategies.

FE Newsrooms

The FE Newsroom is home to your content if you are a FE News contributor. It also help the audience develop relationship with either you as an individual or your organisation as they can click through and ‘box set’ consume all of your previous thought leadership articles, latest education news press releases, videos and education podcasts.

Do you want to contribute, share your ideas or vision or share a press release?

If you want to write a thought leadership article, share your ideas and vision for the future of education or the future of work, write a press release sharing the latest education news or contribute to a podcast, first of all you need to set up a FE Newsroom login (which is free): once the team have approved your newsroom (all content, newsrooms are all approved by a member of the FE News team- no robots are used in this process!), you can then start adding content (again all articles, videos and podcasts are all approved by the FE News editorial team before they go live on FE News). As all newsrooms and content are approved by the FE News team, there will be a slight delay on the team being able to review and approve content.
