Other research fields for him includes: employers and personal branding, organizational identity, international proactiveness and Catholic higher education among others. His research has been presented in the U.S., Latin America and Europe.

Before starting his academic career, he worked for more than twelve years in accounting and finance positions in sectors of banking, construction, wholesale, entertainment, franchises and medical devices including companies like Philips. From 2010 until 2014, he shared his research and teaching assignments with headhunting activity, serving companies like: Modelez-Kraft Foods, United Distillers, Jarden, Zurich Insurance, AmBev (Anheuser-Busch InBev subsidiary) among other international and national firms in Venezuela.

Teaching Philosophy

“Never underestimate your students.” 

“Act as if.” from the Boiler Room (2000 movie)

“Teaching involves adapting knowledge transfer to student's characteristics and groups. Make the students understand they are part of a dynamic business world. Consider all possible stakeholders when approaching a situation or problem. Being able to identify answers to their questions with resources available, and making students execute research as a form to validate and question the mainstream.”
