A senior lecturer in business strategy at one of Gloucestershire’s universities has won an award from the British Academy of Management (BAM). 

Dr Inge Hill from the Royal Agricultural University’s (RAU) School of Business and Entrepreneurship is the first female to win the award, given in the Experienced Practitioner Category within the Education Practice Award competition. 

BAM is regarded as the leading authority in the academic field of management in the UK, supporting and representing the community of scholars and engaging with international peers.

Dr Hill said: “I am humbled to have been selected amongst the intense competition this year. I have been a passionate enterprise educator since 2002 and have influenced policy on enterprise education through Enterprise Educators UK (EEUK) now for three years as one of the Directors. 

“This award means a lot to me and illustrates the growing recognition of the need for entrepreneurship and enterprise education across the curriculum.” 

Now in its third year, the Education Practice Award aims to recognise individual or team initiatives that enhance management learning and education. 

Dr Inge Hill won the competition with her programme entitled: ‘Pop-up Shops for Increasing Employability – enterprise for all through learning via doing.’ 

The programme was judged by a panel of business school deans to be innovative and practical, with good theoretical underpinning; and to have had good impact and traction.
