I love management courses in general but I really enjoy teaching finance, human resources and international business.

The class atmosphere is really engaging and I feel lucky to have the opportunity to interact with students from so many different parts of the world and to meet new people.

I am a life-long learner and enjoy learning new techniques, tips or using resources that will bring engagement and support students in their learning. I strive to make my classroom sessions a safe place for sharing, learning and understanding. I also expect that students come prepared to discuss issues, provide perspectives and contribute during each session. It is engaging and contributing, and practicing that one learns the most.
