It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that Professor Neil Doherty from the School of Business and Economics (SBE) passed away in his sleep on Monday 23rd January. 

Colleagues, students and friends from SBE and the wider University are deeply shocked and saddened. Neil had worked in the School for more than 25 years and was a great colleague and a friend to many.  

Books of Remembrance for Professor Doherty are open in the Chapel J208, 1st floor, EHB and in the School of Business and Economics room BE.1.01 in Sir Richard Morris building.
