Dr Gabi Nudelman

Business School
School of Management and Governance

Gabi is a Senior Lecturer in Business Communication in the School of Management and Governance. She received her BA(Hons) and MA degrees from the University of Cape Town and her PhD in Higher Education Studies from Rhodes University. Before joining UNSW, she worked at the University of Cape Town, teaching business and academic communication across the Faculties of Engineering and the Built Environment, Commerce and the Graduate School of Business.

 

Gabi’s research focuses on teaching and learning in Higher Education, with a particular interest in how students are equipped with professional employability skills whilst at university. Her research focusses on employability development, professional identity, and professional communication. Her PhD thesis, titled A Social Realist Study of Employability Development in Engineering Education, explored factors that constrained and enabled students’ transitions from student to professional.

 

Gabi is a passionate educator who uses her research to ensure that her teaching remains relevant, innovative and transformative.
