Dr Hakeem Ajonbadi
Dr Hakeem studied and lectured in Nigeria, Belgium, the United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom. His work experiences are deeply rooted in academics. Still, he has also consulted for many private and public sectors on Human Resource Management, Entrepreneurship Development, Business analytics, Tax Matters, among others.
Dr Hakeem is interested in descriptive, intervention research studies conducted in the real world of behavioural, social and management sciences. Over the last two decades, he has published four textbooks and over forty peer-reviewed articles and participated in over one hundred conferences (including invited and peer-reviewed oral presentations and panel discussions) on different topics of management. His research utilises both qualitative and quantitative methods, and he believes his record of peer-reviewed publications and professional conference presentations demonstrate his skills as a management scientist that have a clear understanding of organisational behaviour and human resource management.
He consolidated on an established entrepreneurship programme and managed a Centre for Entrepreneurship as the director. His current and future plans are to secure funding for a substantial multi-year intervention to address the challenges of labour market segmentation, organisational flexibility and social relations of production among multinational organisations in developing economies. He is also keenly interested in building and maintaining collaborative relationships between academics representing multiple disciplines and other professionals within the spheres of management sciences.
