Dr Grace Bo Peng

  • Overview



    Grace completed her doctoral training in Management at the Cass Business School, City University London, under the supervision of Prof. Vangelis Souitaris and Dr. Stefania Zerbinati, in the Entrepreneurship group, and passed the viva without correction in July 2017. She then worked as a research fellow on the entrepreneurship finance projects in the Warwick Business School. Grace joined Birkbeck as a lecturer in the department of management in 2018.

    Before joining Cass, she conducted an MPhil in the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, developing solid foundations in quantitative research methods, as testified by the two meta-analytic articles on international tourism demand analysis and forecasting published in Tourism Management and Journal of Travel Research.

    After moving to Cass and joining the doctoral programme, she reoriented her interests to the entrepreneurship field. Her doctoral dissertation focused on entrepreneurial finance and exit strategies. Over the last two years, she has attended and presented different versions of her work at the Babson Entrepreneurship Research Conference, the Academy of Management Conference and conferences of Strategic Management Society.
