Scholarship and teaching philosophy:

My teaching has predominately circled around strategy, decision-making and corporate governance. I have throughout my career had opportunities to make use of practical experiences in business situations in teaching, as well as applying research based and systematic knowledge creation in executive education. I consider myself a boundary spanner in this regard.

I am currently the director for the Master’s Programme in International Strategic Management, which has 45 enrolled students. I was responsible for developing the programme, which has been running since 2016. I am course leader for the course in Corporate Governance as well as the degree projects in the programme. I also act as supervisor for theses, etc.
