Teaching philosophy

My teaching has for many years circled around strategy, governance and management control. To a large extent my teaching strategy has been based on experience, cases and problem based teaching.

(1)    Bachelor program - in which I am course leader and teacher for one course in Strategy (semi-flipped classroom).

(2)    Master in Marketing – in which I held a course on Management (based on a real-life client case where students in teams dealt with management challenges for individuals and groups).

(3)    Master in Management – in which I give/gave modules in many courses. (a) Leading Individuals, Groups and Projects (semi-flipped classroom); (b) Strategic management (flipped classroom).; (c) Learning, development and change; (d) Thesis supervisor

(4)    Co-founder of the Lund University Case Academy (started 2014)
