I teach in the master's programme in Strategic Business Development. During 20 years of career, I have taught courses related to economics, strategy, business models, and entrepreneurship, as well as knowledge management. I am currently involved in the following courses: Developing business models, International Strategic Management, and Research Update in Strategic Management.


I am operating as an Associate Professor in the Strategic Business Development research group and VEBIC research platform. My current research focuses on servitization, business intelligence, and strategy-as-practice. My papers can be found from journals such as International Journal of Operations and Production Management, International Journal of Production Economics, Regional Studies, Industrial Marketing Management, Journal of Small Business Management, and Research Technology Management.
