Dr Susan Carpenter
We are very sad to learn of the untimely death of Susan Carpenter, Board Member of the Asia Scotland Institute in Edinburgh on January 29th.
An enthusiastic supporter of our mission to Educate and Inspire Tomorrow’s Leaders in Scotland, Susan came to Edinburgh in 2003 to receive a doctorate from the University of Edinburgh School of Management. Earlier in her career she had spent many years in Japan including work as the only non-Japanese person in both commercial companies and Japanese Government Agencies. In Edinburgh she set up her own consulting company and taught courses on Japanese and East Asian political economies, becoming Director of the MSc in International and Emerging Markets as well as being the author of several books and papers.
Susan was always full of ideas and her contribution to our activities will be very sorely missed.
