Research interests

Jingwen’s PhD project looks at the research-teaching nexus in schools of Economics and Business at research-intensive universities in China and the UK from the perspective of undergraduate students. Specifically, with a sequential mixed methods design involving focus group interviews and a questionnaire survey, the research investigates the following questions:

  • What kinds of research-teaching nexus do business school undergraduate students experience at research-intensive universities in China and the UK, and what are their attitudes towards these experienced nexuses?
  • Are there any differences in business school undergraduates’ experiences of, and attitudes towards the research-teaching nexus when comparing China and the UK?
  • Are specific kinds of research-teaching nexus related to any of the key characteristics in business school undergraduates’ experiences in China and the UK?

Jingwen's research supervisor's are Dr James Hall and Dr John Schulz
