Background

Professor Eugene Kozlovski is a DBA Supervisor at UWTSD London. He is also Professor of Management at SMC University (Switzerland) and the EU Jean Monnet Visiting Professor at the Academy of Labour and Social Relations (Ukraine), and holds professorships and affiliations with a number of leading international universities and business schools. In addition to his academic activities, he is a Founder and Managing Director of a London-based management consultancy for globally-located corporate clients and governments, ranging from Intel to the Bank of Ghana. Previously, he directed large-scale multinational projects in the EU IST Consortium, where he was responsible for managing joint efforts of Alcatel-Lucent (USA and Netherlands units), Telefonica (Spain), Portugal Telecom and other top-tier telemedia and technology companies, and for coordinating their deliverables and strategic reports to the European Commission. On top of that, he led major global R&D programmes, and in 2006-10, was Programme Director for e-Business at the University of Liverpool Management School.

His Doctorate earned from University College London (University of London) in 2003, was based on an interdisciplinary study into Management, Economics and Engineering of International ICT Infrastructures. He also completed an executive programme in Industrial Economics and Management at London Metropolitan University in 1998, and earlier, MSc in Physics and Computer Science at Dnipropetrovsk National University, Ukraine.

His findings have been presented extensively at leading international peer-reviewed conferences and published in refereed academic journals and books, such as Kluwer/Springer Academic Book Series. He regularly acts as an invited speaker at major international symposia, business forums and in the media, and has been an invited referee for some highly-ranked journals (e.g. IEEE Journal of Selected Areas in Communications). Professor Kozlovski’s biography has been selected and included by the invitation of editors into the international reference books “Who is Who in Emerging Leaders, 2007” and in “Who is Who in the World”, 2004 and 2008 editions, respectively (Marquis Who’s Who, USA). His awards include the British Chevening Research Award of the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office, UCL Graduate School Research Fellowship, the Committee of Presidents and Vice-Chancellors of UK Universities Award (British ORS Award), and EU IST Fellowship.
