Teaching Experience

I have developed my teaching experience and philosophy through my position as Teaching Assistant at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) from 2012 to 2017. Each semester, I supervised students for the various courses offered in finance by the Chair of Corporate Finance and Governance from Prof. Dr. Isakov. I also supported the students in their final dissertations (Bachelor and Master theses). In addition, I enhanced my pedagogical skills by having completed a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS, 30 ECTS) in Higher Education and Educational Technology at the University of Fribourg in parallel to my PhD. With this degree, I developed the professional skills of a teacher of higher education.

Since September 2018, I am an Assistant Professor of Finance at IESEG School of Management (Lille, France) and teach several courses in the Grande Ecole program. I also supervise Master theses and I am a pedagogical tutor for apprenticeship training (Master program).
