what i do
Experience & Education
I currently hold a full professorship for International Tourism Management at the Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences Faculty of International Business. Previously I was professor for tourism and event management at the International School of Management, in Frankfurt.
I have over fifteen years of experience in education and over a decade in consulting on international development and management projects.
My greatest strength is my interdisciplinary background including a PhD in Sociology, classic business administration and management (MBA, PDM), a Masters of Science in Urban development and International Cooperation and a BA Hons in Tourism and Heritage Management.
This seemingly crazy mix demonstrates my approach to life-long learning as a multi-faceted journey. The challenges facing students, employees and entrepreneurs are diverse and complex and my ability to help solve complex challenges comes straight out of my diverse background. I view challenges from a number of perspectives.
