I am senior lecturer in International Business and module leader for Managing International Alliances & Global Business Environment. Before I fell in love with Sheffield Hallam University, I was managing international partners for a Slovak IT company serving the banking industry. I was also trying to predict futures and competitor behaviour for a major telecoms company in Slovakia in exciting times of transformation from state monopoly to... well, almost monopoly under free market conditions. I have experienced learning at Slovak state university, just to move to American university in Slovakia where I studied International Business. Experience of studying at our very own Sheffield Business school persuaded me to stay longer. I am teaching at all undergraduate levels, postgraduates, supervise dissertations and consultancy projects.
