Congratulations to Dr Steven Kilroy who has been awarded the Pearse Walsh Medal Award 2016.

Now in its second year, the Pearse Walsh Medal Award is presented to one outstanding graduate of the DCU Business School PhD Programme, whose research demonstrates an approach to innovation in industry in the fields of Organisation Development, Change Management, Cultural Change, Learning and Development, Management and Leadership Development.
