Dr Péter Erdélyi is Deputy Head of Department in the Department of Marketing, Strategy & Innovation (MSI) in The Business School. He holds a PhD from the London School of Economics and Political Science, an MBA from IESE Business School in Barcelona, and an MA from the State University of New York. He has over 20 years of higher education teaching experience acquired in the USA, Taiwan, Slovakia, and the UK. Previously he held positions as Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in Strategy and Marketing, and roles as interim Head of Education & Professional Practice, and Framework Leader for Postgraduate Courses in Management, overseeing a suite of five Master's programmes. Péter helped set up and facilitates the MSI Research Forum (and formerly the Strategy, Entrepreneurship & Innovation Research Forum). He serves as external panel member at postgraduate and executive programme validation events in the UK and internationally. He has also worked on various finance, technology, and marketing-related projects at Goldman Sachs, Ford Motor Company, and NIKE, and with a number of micro-enterprises in e-commerce and entrepreneurial education.
My current research interests revolve around the nature and role of markets and marketplaces in entrepreneurship and innovation, and participants' valuation practices when engaging with such markets. More broadly speaking, I am interested in the intersection of entrepreneurship, innovation and market studies. I helped set up and run the Strategy, Innovation & Entrepreneurship Research Forum in the department. I use qualitative research methods, especially actor-network theory (ANT). I draw on economic sociology, organisation theory, and science and technology studies (STS). I have supervised doctoral students in the areas of entrepreneurship, small business support, collaboration, and supply relationships, in both developed and developing country contexts. So far I have supervised 3 PhD students to completion, who have gone on to be successfully employed as university lecturers or researchers. I am also an internal and external PhD examiner. I welcome inquiries from prospective PhD applicants interested in conducting qualitative research in the above areas.
