Visiting Fellow Profile

Amanda Goodall


Amanda GoodallAmanda Goodall left high school at 16 and worked as a fashion model until the mid 1980s. She then lived in India working on a small development project, and for a number of years worked with non-profit organizations back in the UK. In 1997 she graduated with a first-class honours degree from the London School of Economics. She then worked with Anthony Giddens, Director of the London School of Economics, as part of the top management team, and later with the Vice Chancellor of Warwick University. In 2004 Amanda won an ESRC scholarship to start a PhD at Warwick Business School. Her research drew directly from her work with leaders of research universities. She got her PhD in March 2007, and is currently an ESRC Post-Doctoral Fellow at Warwick University. Her PhD is a study of strategic leadership. It draws upon a mixture of statistical analysis and interviews with university presidents. It will be published as a book by Princeton University Press in Spring 2009.
