Monder Ram's Biography

Monder Ram OBE has had a long-standing interest in management processes within small firms. In particular, his work has concentrated upon the dynamics of ethnic minority entrepreneurship, employment relations in small firms, and the role of the family within the small enterprise.

Monder joined Birmingham Business School from De Montfort University in September 2013 where he was Professor of Small Business and Director of Centre for Research in Ethnic Minority Entrepreneurship (CREME) and Co-Director of the Enterprise and Diversity Alliance (EDA). Birmingham Business School is the new home for both CREME and the EDA.

He has extensive experience of working in, researching and acting as a consultant to small and ethnic minority businesses. He is a leading authority on small business and ethnic minority entrepreneurship research and has published widely on the subject. Monder Ram was responsible for initiating the annual Ethnic Minority Business Conference in 1998, which has developed into the most important event in the calendar for disseminating policy and research on ethnic minority firms.

Monder also holds the positions of Visiting Fellow at the Industrial Relations Research Unit at Warwick University, and the Herbert Felix Visiting Professor at Lund University in Sweden. He was named as one of the country’s most influential Asians by the Institute of Asian Professionals, and was awarded an OBE in the 2004 New Year Honours List for his services to black and ethnic minority businesses.
