Furthermore, he teaches the following courses:
Co-teaching the course: ‘International and European Environments’
This course focuses on the institutional frameworks of organizations such as the EU, WTO, World Bank, and the IMF, with about 450 undergraduate students enrolled. I organized two guest lecturers, prepared the course outline, taught the courses (10x2 hours), and evaluated the students based on MC-questions.
Teaching the course: ‘Strategic Management in the Pharmaceutical Industry’
This course focuses on strategic management within the pharmaceutical sector, with about 50 postgraduate and doctoral students enrolled. Field trips are organized with the students, in which they visit pharmaceutical companies and, based on the field trips and lectures, they have to develop a strategic written report for a given pharmaceutical company, which they then have to defend orally.
Guest lecturer: ‘Sino-European Trade Relations’
I give guest lectures about Sino-European trade relations at the University of Rijeka (Croatia) and the University of Antwerp (Belgium), with about 40 undergraduate students enrolled.
