Mrs Deborah Pinder-Young


I am currently the acting Director of Undergraduate Programmes, Business and Professional Readiness, Placements and Alumni, and Head of Department of Management (Interim). I teach on both Postgraduate and Undergraduate courses. I am a chartered member of the CIPD and a fellow member of the CMI, and a Senior fellow of the HEA. I am still actively engaged with industry and engage in executive consultancy with companies in the area of Leadership and Organisational Development.

I have taught in Moscow every year for approximately fifteen years on the MBA and the MSc International Human Resource Management.

Previously to becoming an academic I was a Learning and Development Manager, and won a national training award for an innovative development programme that was the first in the country and subsequently used in schools across the country.
