Teaching

I’ve taught at both undergraduate and graduate levels at several business schools. In terms of teaching, I’m trying to emulate a former lecturer of mine, Dr. John E. Brennan, who kept on emphasizing that “economics is a living, breathing thing.“ I couldn’t agree more. Our field is lively and exciting. My hope is that I can transmit this liveliness in my lectures and ignite my students’ inspiration.

I’ve previously given classes on marketing and innovation, usually centered around social media and online communities. I have also developed a course on research methods for business students. My biggest recent teaching project was the development of a MOOC, entitled ‘Human Resource Management in a Digital Age’ (here’s the link to the YouTube trailer). Below is a short video interview with Harald Schirmer, Manager Digital Transformation and Change at Continental AG, which was part of the course.
