The first Institute for Sport Business doctoral researcher completes PhD degree
Qi Peng joined the Institute for Sport Business in 2015 and became the first Doctoral Researcher to successfully complete a PhD degree earlier this month.
Qi’s PhD, entitled The Institutional Change Process in the Chinese Sport Sector: An Organisational Analysis on the Chinese Football Association Reform examined the impact of policy changes on sport organisations through the lens of Multiple Streams Framework and organisational change theories.
Using the Chinese Football Association (CFA) as a case study, Qi’s research aimed to understand the reasons behind the “Jvguo Tizhi”(举国体制) policy and organisational change, the change process and its implications. She completed the degree under the supervision of Professor James Skinner and Professor Barrie Houlihan.
