Her teaching experience is mainly concentrated on executive teaching and training to business companies and industrial associations and integrates theory with practice. It is characterized by a close integration between academic research and company engagement.

Her executive teaching is also informed by my professional experience in the consultant spin-off of Sant'Anna School of Advanced Studies, with whom I am collaborating since 2009.
