Syed Zaidi

  • Job title: Lecturer
  • Department: Staffordshire Business School

Background

I joined Staffordshire University as a Lecturer in Accounting and Finance in February 2017. Before joining Staffordshire I commenced my PhD at Loughborough University. My area of research includes topics in corporate governance, corporate finance, financial accounting, and behavioural finance. I am currently working in the field of corporate governance. The focus of my research is the study of board duty and board members and their role on effective decision-making and on their firm’s performance.

I have completed my MSc in Finance from Lancaster University, UK. I also hold an MBA (Finance) degree from Lahore School of Economics, Pakistan. Before coming to the UK to study for my MSc, I worked for two years as a full-time lecturer at COMSATS, a public university of Pakistan.

My career objective is to excel in the field of academic teaching and research with the help of providing consistently improved skills and updated knowledge to students and performing research activities in the Accounting and Finance disciplines.
