At the Chair in International Management and Governance, we teach students the basics of research in international business and encourage them to develop and discuss their own questions. The focus is on the theories of multinational companies and their complex environment, which is constantly changing due to the advancing globalization. Moreover, students will engage with concepts in order to achieve a deeper understanding of principles of business research, quantitative and qualitative methods, all while maintaining an awareness and sensitivity to the ethical issues of research. Courses will seek to develop and hone student’s critical, theoretical, and empirical analysis skills in order to develop the competencies to apply these concepts to real-world issues. Developing teamwork skills to analytically assess real-world situations will also be key concepts throughout the courses. In order to work towards the aforementioned goals, our teaching philosophy is simple; engaging with students who engage with the concepts at hand. We will hold ourselves accountable to the same standards which we hold students accountable. We aspire to facilitate students’ learning in the modules and maximize student interaction with the complex ideas brought forth by the learning material. Our teaching philosophy will seek to keep these questions in mind during: What is the professor’s role in the modules in relation to student learning outcomes? Which competencies should students achieve to acquire? How do we ensure the sustainable transfer of these competencies?
