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.”
