“One of the great things about teaching international business is that it brings me into contact with students from all over the world. I love foreign cultures and languages, so this really is my ideal job. One of the highlights of my career has actually been living in Guangzhou in southern China for a year and teaching at the Guangdong University of Foreign Studies. I also worked with senior academics from six countries to advise the Moldovan government on the modernisation of their Higher Education sector.”
