Teaching Approach

My goal as a teacher is to prepare students for the professional context they will enter after graduation. I want to encourage students to think more analytical, to be critical in their assessment of a situation, and to formulate and communicate their alternatives adequately. To become effective strategic decision-makers, students need to be able to outline their arguments and to apply empirically grounded tools. 


My teaching is directed at helping students develop these skills through actionable management knowledge. I strive to combine research-driven lessons with engaging exercises and real-world case studies. As a teacher at a business school, I see my role as being a developmental coach for students. Most business students have specific career aspirations and already concrete learning objectives, which I want to support in the best way. 

Furthermore, I am also interested in the development of students' social competencies. I strive for an engaging and friendly classroom setting, where students can openly communicate and cooperate with each other as part of action-based learning. I believe that having social competencies increases students' peer acceptance and the ability to adapt to social environments.
