Teaching interests

Having taught at the University of Arizona, UCLA, as well as at several universities abroad, I am qualified to teach undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, and executive courses on organizational behavior & management, entrepreneurship, technology innovation, strategy, and international management, among other topics.


I currently teach an undergraduate-level Organizational Behavior & Management class at the University of Arizona's Eller College of Management. Previously, I have assisted in teaching an undergraduate-level Entrepreneurship class for the Department of Sociology at UCLA. In addition, I have independently instructed courses in English-language master’s and undergraduate programs abroad. For instance, I have designed and taught several graduate-level classes on International Management and Innovation & Organizational Creativity at Technical University Munich's Center for Technology in Society (Germany) beginning in 2007. I taught a doctoral-level course on Market-Oriented Strategy at Tecnológico de Monterrey's EGADE Business School (Mexico). Finally, I taught an undergraduate-level Entrepreneurship class at RWTH Aachen University's School of Business and Economics (Germany).
