Mr Michael O'Connor
I am a Senior Lecturer in the Accounting and Financial Management Subject Group in the Faculty of Business and Law.
I was co-organiser of the 5th European Research Conference in Microfinance that took place at Portsmouth Business School in June 2017 as well as being co-editor of a recently published collection of papers arising from the conference.
Having graduated in law from Trinity College Dublin, I trained in indirect tax with Arthur Andersen and KPMG as well as completing a traineeship as a 'Blue Book' stagiaire in Brussels at DG Taxud.
I built the Russian financial training business of an Irish third level private education provider while based for several years in Moscow as well as spending significant time in China, Central Asia, West Africa and Belgium working with public sector and private organisations following which I joined Portsmouth Business School in early 2015.
Microfinance, financial inclusion, development finance, emerging technologies, and taxation
Modules that I co-ordinate are generally in financial management at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
