Presentation

My research focuses on management learning and higher education, notably at business schools; as well as cross-cultural inquiry. I am interested in learning not only as the transfer of know-how and technical skills but also more broadly as a process of identity formation, acculturation and development of tacit abilities such as intercultural competences, ethical awareness and creativity and innovation; and in exploring how students apprehend and negotiate the implicit messages received via the ‘hidden curriculum’ at business schools in different cultural contexts.

Recently I have been working with the impact of affective and aesthetic dimensions on responsible management learning, and alternative curricular designs that bear these elements in mind. Current projects explore i) the significance of curricular space (or its absence) for learning at business schools and in higher education more broadly; ii) the implications of emergent disciplinary identities for business students’ sense of personal responsibility iii)  The competences acquired by business students as a result of a collaborative field course in an African country. My research has fed into curricular change at CBS and beyond, as well as into teacher training courses and outreach initiatives for international students designed to make tacit aspects of local learning culture explicit both to local and international staff and students.
