Dr Oguz A. Acar becomes Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts

Prestigious honour for Cass Business School academic

Dr Oguz A. Acar has become a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA).

The RSA invited Dr Acar to join its fellowship due to his “important and valuable research around innovation management, digital marketing and consumer behaviour, particularly focusing on how using recent digital marketing strategies to engage with consumers impacts a firm’s innovative efforts.”

Dr Acar said:

“This invitation was such a great surprise. I am thrilled that my research on how open digital models can be better used to unleash, support and harness the creative potential of people has been recognised by the RSA.

“It is an honour to have been invited to be a part of an organisation that has been at the forefront of championing positive social change for centuries and to follow the footsteps of some of the brightest minds in the history. I look forward to contributing to the RSA’s projects and working together with like-minded Fellows from all over the world.”
