In September 2021, the University received a donation from alumnus and global business leader Dr Charles Huang from his philanthropic foundation. This transformational gift funds the Stephen Young Institute, launched in honour of Dr Huang’s PhD mentor, Prof Stephen Young.
Over the next decade, we aim to maximise the impact and value of our research by:
The Stephen Young Institute is working in the areas of international and sustainable business, marketing, innovation and entrepreneurship. Building on the work of our namesake, Prof. Stephen Young, a former professor of SBS’s Marketing Department, SYI focuses on relationships between people and organisations in value networks in an international business context. Consistent with the University’s values we aim to ensure equitable flows of value that are socially inclusive and diverse.
The Stephen Young Institute is proud of the impact that Dr Charles Huang’s generous gift to the University of Strathclyde is creating through the Stephen Young Global Leaders scholarships and Stephen Young Entrepreneurial prizes that have been awarded since the founding of the Institute.
