About me

About me

Dr. Emmanuel Arakpogun is an academic in Digital Economy and International Business Strategy with research interests that interlink the liberalisation of the telecoms market and the application of universal access policies as a combined strategy for creating innovative solutions to closing the digital divides in the global south, particularly African countries. His publications and ‘pipeline’ research span various aspects of strategy and ICT4D using a case study approach. He reviews journals listed on the Chartered ABS, including Government Information Quarterly, Information Technology & People, International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, and Journal of Management Information Systems. He also reviews for the Academy of Management (AOM) and the Academy of International Business (AIB). Prior to joining the University of Stirling, Emmanuel worked with Newcastle Business School, Northumbria University, as Senior Lecturer in Digital Economy and International Business Strategy.

Before academia, Emmanuel worked in the banking and fin-tech sectors in Nigeria and the UK. He also worked briefly with Robert Bosch GmbH, the German multinational engineering and technology company, as a Sales Analyst covering European Sales and Project Management.

Besides research, Emmanuel has a strong passion for learning and teaching with a constructivism teaching philosophy that enables the co-creation of agile knowledge with students. He is interested in mentoring Ph.D. candidates with research interests in ICT4D, including Digital Inclusion, Fintech & Mobile Money, and the internationalisation of Tech & Telecom MNEs. Prospective Ph.D. candidates are welcomed.
