    Research and Scholarly Engagement

    My main research interests lie in the broad fields of international business, entrepreneurship, and strategic management, focusing on Africa developing economies and emerging markets in topics such as foreign direct investment, inter-organisational relationships, resource mobilisation strategies, strategic management of SMEs, strategic foresight, and Innovation Management. I have authored several articles in refereed academic journals, conference proceedings, and book chapters. My current research has appeared in journals such as: Technological Forecasting and Social Change, IEEE Transaction in Engineering Management, Critical Perspective in International Business, International Review of Entrepreneurship, International Journal of Innovation and Technology Management. I review for a number of journals and international conferences such as: Entrepreneurship and Regional DevelopmentIEEE Transaction in Engineering Management, International Review of Entrepreneurship, British Academy of Management Conference, Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management, Strategic Management Society Conference, etc. I am keen to work with Ph.D. students and collaborate with researchers interested in entrepreneurship, international business, and strategy in developing economies and Africa emerging markets. 


    Teaching and Learning

    I am a Lecturer in International Business and Course Director for the MSc Advanced International Business and MBus in International Business Course at the School of Strategy and Leadership. I am also a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). I have been involved extensively in the teaching and Learning activities at UK HEs where I teach and lead modules both at the undergraduate and postgraduate (MSc and MBA) levels. I have proven experience in the design, development, and delivery of courses and modules at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The Socratic approach is central to my teaching philosophy in order to promote reflective thinking and improve the students' communicative and trans-cultural skills. To support my design and planning of learning activities. I draw upon the social constructionist theory – which emphasises collaborative learning, sees individual learning as essentially related to the success of group learning, and integration of students into a knowledge community. I use a variety of relevant technology and computer-based tools in my teachings such as: Kahoot, Socrative, Webboard, wikis, and YouTube and also use case studies that are both compelling and challenging for the students so that they are stimulated to think “beyond” their comfort zone and feel involved in their own learning process. I currently lead/teach (or have led/taught) the following modules at undergraduate and postgraduate levels:

    • International Business
    • The Geopolitical, Economic, and Legal Environment
    • The Global Business Environment, Evolution and Dynamics 
    • The Economics of International Business
    • Principles of Strategy 
    • Europe through the Global Lens
