Professor Mark Logan

  • Professor in Practice -Technology Entrepreneurship (School of Computing Science)


I'm a Professor in Practice in the School of Computing Science. This means that I work in industry, rather than as a full-time academic member of staff. I therefore work part-time at the University. I'm also the Chief Entrepreneurial Advisor to the Scottish Government, a Senior Enterprise Fellow at the University of Strathclyde, and additionally consult with start-ups and scale-ups in the UK and internationally and train executives.  

I have almost 30 years of senior and executive leadership experience in the internet technology industry sector, mainly in start-ups and scale-ups. I was instrumental in the success of multiple start-ups, including as COO of Skyscanner, one of Europe's most successful technology companies, where I was responsible for the general management of the business during Skyscanner's high-growth phase.  



I teach the COMPSCI4087 Start-up Growth Engineering course in the School of Computing Science.
