Spotlight on CCG Members - Angela Murphy - OBE - July 2021

Jul, 7 2021

When making decisions about a career many young people may decide to step out of the educational remit. They may consider a manual job or develop their own business. Some even choose to take a gap year before they weigh up their options again. This month’s ‘Spotlight on CCG Members’ though took the path that kept her in education and she has remained so ever since. Let us discover more about Angela Murphy.

Angela has spent over 35 years in international higher education. This has seen her hold senior posts with her most recent appointment as Deputy Vice – Chancellor (International).

Her managerial role has found her achieving a high level of skill in the following areas-

  • Student affairs and student experience  
  • Quality and standards
  • Marketing
  • Recruitment and branding

Angela’s reputation hasn’t gone unnoticed. Ten years ago she worked as a leader in the field of international educational development and this led her to receive national status by the award of an OBE (Order of the British Empire) for her pioneering international work in November 2011.

This gave her the confidence to establish a global educational consultancy company in January 2012.

Almost a decade on and Angela can look back with pride at the major universities she has invested considerable time into. This covers the district of:-

  • England
  • Wales
  • Scotland

She has also been a keen specialist education advisor in foreign affairs. This saw her work for a private HE institution in the Sultanate of Oman, to the former VP of City U Hong Kong, and a Chinese consortium.

 By December 2016 Angela was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by UCLAN.

Now in 2021, she is working as a Managing Director of AMM Global Education Consultancy Limited, a higher education consultancy company which provides dedicated international services to educational institutions.

I’m sure all of us can learn from Angela’s outstanding level of commitment and expertise when it comes to her place of employment. We welcome Angela Murphy OBE to the CCG and we look forward to discovering more about time in education.
