"A great international experience"

Interview with guest lecturer Dr Michiel Coetzer

By Sven Rottner

To make studying a truly international experience, ESB Business School regularly invites guest lecturers from all over the world to teach at the school. Students and lecturers alike gain insight into cultural and academic differences. Dr Michiel Coetzer, a qualified Industrial and Organisational Psychologist and a certified Neuro-Leadership coach from South Africa is certain that this can also be achieved by online teaching. The associate professor has given lectures for Leadership and Human Resource Management in the BSc International Management Double Degree programme. He was overwhelmed by the remarkable international atmosphere at ESB Business School and the strong support he has received there.

What motivated you to teach at ESB Business School?

I was motivated to teach at ESB Business School in order to gain international exposure at a reputable university and business school and to empower international students with the knowledge and skills to lead people effectively.

What was your first impression of ESB Business School? Was there anything in particular that caught your attention? If so, why?

I was very impressed by the warmth and professionalism of everyone I engaged with at ESB Business School. The staff were very friendly and supportive and went above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate me. I am very grateful for this experience and for all the support I have received from everyone at ESB Business School.  

What is the biggest difference between universities in your home country and ESB Business School?

The main difference is the international culture. ESB Business School has succeeded in creating an international culture that welcomes all students or professors and to enabling them to feel at home in a foreign country while studying or working.

International teaching is both challenging and enriching. What is your personal recipe for a truly international lecture?

My recipe for a truly international lecture would be to encourage engagement, group discussion, the sharing of different perspectives on a specific topic and finding a way to apply knowledge and skills learnt in an international context.

What is your biggest takeaway from your experience at ESB Business School?

My biggest takeaway from working at ESB Business School is the wonderful people I have met and networked with.

Can you please summarise your experience at ESB Business School in one sentence?

A great international experience that has enriched my life and career.

Thank you for the interview.
