Are today’s ‘grand challenges’ under-researched? That’s what assistant professor Corinna Frey-Heger suspected when she joined RSM’s department of Business-Society Management in 2018.

Although the refugee crisis had not yet become an issue when she started her doctoral research, it did become more serious, particularly in Europe. Corinna went on to win the Grigor McClelland award in July 2019 and the EGOS Best Student Paper Award in 2018 for her research into the global displacement crisis.
