Over 100 students from Belgium’s prestigious Solvay Brussels School of Economics and Management recently attended a guest lecture delivered by Dr K. Prakash Vel, Associate Professor of Marketing at the University of Wollongong in Dubai.

Dr Vel was invited by the world-renowned Brussels-based business school to deliver a guest lecture on ‘Emerging trends in Marketing’ to their postgraduate students. The session saw students from across Europe interact with and debate various aspects of marketing theory.

Dr Vel said of the opportunity: “It was wonderful to be invited to lecture at Solvay Brussels School. My lecture was received with warmth and focus by the students, and I was delighted to represent the University of Wollongong in Dubai. It is yet another example of how the research and teaching expertise of the academic fraternity here at UOWD is having a positive impact across the globe. I owe my thanks to Solvay Brussels School for the opportunity.”
