Personal profile


Dr Adah-Kole Onjewu is a Lecturer in Business Strategy in the School of Strategy and Leadership, Coventry University. His research interests include entrepreneurship, international business, hospitality and tourism. Through structural equation modelling and fuzzy-set analyses, his recent publications investigate how entrepreneurship education, SMEs' export behaviour and the management of hospitality enterprises may contribute to socio-economic development mostly in the African context. Dr Onjewu examines these outcomes using behavioural models such as social cognitive theory, the theory of planned behaviour and the big five personality traits. 

Along with colleagues, Dr Onjewu is currently engaged in the development of a framework to capture and operationalise managers' transformational propensity for inclusive development. He actively consults with civil and faith-based organisations including the Raw Materials Research and Development Council of Nigeria and the Christian Institute for Theological Engagement in Malaysia. 

He holds a PhD from the University of Plymouth and an MSc. in International Business from the University of Hertfordshire.


The predispotition of managers manifests in decision-making during economic activity. Through my research, I aim to clarify and explain background factors underlying managerial behaviour to the extent that they generate socio-economic development.
