Jayne Luscombe holds an undergraduate degree in Economics from the University of Sussex and an MA in International Event Management from the University of Brighton. Prior to joining the University of Brighton as a senior lecturer in 2006, she worked in multi-national blue chip organizations for 15 years. She specialized in the meetings, conference and exhibition sector but was also involved in graduate recruitment and development. This professional experience enabled her to develop an appreciation of the complexities of global business environments and different cultural perspectives within the business world. Since joining the University of Brighton, she has developed the undergraduate provision in international events and now contributes to the teaching programme at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Jayne is working towards a PhD in which she is examining the role of World Expos in an increasingly globalized society.
