Teaching

COURSES

I teach advanced courses on global strategy. They provide students with concepts, frameworks, and tools for understanding how to create value. I push students to think critically, understand the assumptions behind their arguments, and identify the logic of their statements. Although I used textbooks early in my career, I now ask students to read the original frameworks and tools published in journals like Harvard Business Review and Sloan Management Review. I also write cases to illustrate their application, using information from periodicals such as The Economist, Financial Times, or Wall Street Journal. This results in students’ deeper learning and understanding as they critically analyze and apply the concepts, tools, and frameworks discussed in class to recent events.   

Throughout my career, I have taught a variety of courses. I currently teach the capstone undergraduate strategy course. This a list of courses and workshops I have taught at various universities around the world. Some course syllabi appear at the end of this page.

PH.D. THESES
