Teaching

I have a rich teaching experience in designing and leading a number of undergraduate and postgraduate modules in the fields of Strategic Management, Entrepreneurship, and International Business. Yet my main focus during the last couple of years has been the strategic management research.

I am particularly interested in providing the students with the most updated knowledge in the strategic management domain, and at the same time a deep comprehension of its real-life practical implications and applications. To this end, my modules are underpinned by world-class strategic management research. This gives the students a much more rigorous grounding in the field. In addition, I always bring in to my teaching contemporary ideas in the news and international developments, often case studies and workshops on management tools use. This approach has proved very successful with students as they can see how both classical and current theory relates to what occurs in the real world, as well as offering practical solutions for the issues faced by managers and within organisations.

Furthermore, in my teaching I have always tried to utilize innovative approaches and tools, such as Business Simulations and Live Case Studies. These approaches provide the students with a realistic, first-hand experience of the managerial challenges and tasks, enabling creativity and innovativeness, but within the risk-free environment of the simulated experience.

At the University of Sussex Business School, I currently teach International Business Strategy.
