Dr Lucian Tipi

Deputy Head Of Department - Finance, Accounting and Business Systems

Summary

I have a track record of successful academic leadership and line management at Sheffield Hallam University (SHU), Sheffield Business School (SBS), department and subject group level as part of working groups, committees and projects (e.g. Timetabling and Academic Work Planning).

I have extensive experience of developing strategic, operational, internal and external projects, working with a range of stakeholders (including the Principal Lecturer community and HR).

I have worked in a variety of industries including the armed forces, steel industry, IT consultancy industry and academia. I have extensive UK and international commercial work, teaching and research experience.

I am now co-leading the Finance, Accounting and Business Systems (FABS) Department in the Sheffield Business School at Sheffield Hallam University.

I have worked on a broad range of commercial projects, particularly in IT and IS. These projects were focused on enhancing organisational effectiveness and achieving competitive advantages through technology investment. At Sheffield Business School I have led on several consultancy projects with a business improvement aim.

I represent SHU and SBS through a variety of external media outlets and I have regular contributions through interviews or articles on business or teaching expertise areas (for example Cybercrime).
