I love teaching at York - from the great discussions in tutorials, to the buzz of a workshop, to the excitement of seeing the first data from an undergraduate project.

The best thing about what we do is bringing students to the coalface of what real engineering is as early as possible. I love exposing students to real, project-based learning, which we do from day one. I think that’s absolutely essential, particularly in areas such as engineering, so that you start to build the foundations of what you’re going to be up against in the real world.

I use history in class. Strategic management draws on theories from history, sociology, law - it’s a bit of an interdisciplinary melting pot. If you’ve only looked at business from a mathematical or financial perspective, this is a really different way of thinking. The key for me is to be critical: question everything - don’t take anything at face value.
