Biography

Aniela is located at the Hunter Centre for Entrepreneurship at Strathclyde Business School. Her research focusses on the “Rewards of Entrepreneurship: Constructing Economic Well-Being within Entrepreneurial Households”. Aniela will explore the concept of direct and indirect financial rewards that can be accrued from running a family business. She takes an entrepreneurial household as the unit of analysis and considers how its members adjust their financial rewards in order to satisfy personal and business requirements. Her research concentrates on the process of negotiation and the rational/irrational nature of these decisions. He research is being supervised by Professors Sara Carter and Jonathan Levie.

She has an MSc in both Economics (University of Warmia and Mazury Poland 2009) and International Banking and Finance (University of Strathclyde 2013). Aniela’s professional career started from real estate and telecommunications industries and then progressed into the international banking sector. She spent a couple of years as a personal banker providing financial services for individual and SME clients. Her personal backgrounds, however, precipitated her strong interest in the topic of family firms and encouraged her to pursue an academic career in this field.
