Network Volatility and Advantage in Banking Business School

Friday 23 September 2011

The University of Greenwich is holding a free seminar on Network Volatility and Advantage in Banking on the 23 September 2011. 

This topic is presented by Professor Ron Burt, University of Chicago Booth, Business School, who has made world-leading contributions to the study of social networks and how this creates competitive advantage in careers, organizations, and markets.

Advantage lies in both the structure and the volatility of a network. Whatever the advantage provided by a network, changes from the previous to the subsequent network have implications for performance.  This will be explored with the banking sector.

Who can attend:

The seminar is open to all University of Greenwich staff, students and the public.


Friday 23 September 2011, 1 to 3pm


King William Court, room KW302, University of Greenwich, Old Royal Naval College, Park Row, London SE10 9LS

This conference, hosted by the University of Greenwich, is being held at the Greenwich Campus, Old Royal Naval College.

The campus is based on a World Heritage Site on the banks of the river Thames. The university's largest campus is centred on three baroque buildings designed by Sir Christopher Wren at the end of the 17th century.

"More breathtaking than the Versailles of Louis XIV" is how The Independent newspaper described it.
The Borough of Greenwich is steeped in history. East meets West on the Meridian Line, which divides the hemispheres and marks longitude zero. The line runs through the courtyard of the 17th century Royal Observatory and indicates the spot from which Greenwich Mean Time is calculated.
