Dean Rassekh Teaches in Bordeaux France

Barney Associate Dean Farhad Rasssekh spent the first week of November 2011 at the Bordeaux Management School, teaching a portion of a Managerial Economics course.  Since English is the lingua franca of the global business world, French universities are expanding their English language offerings in order to attract more international students.  And they are seeking English speaking professors to teach these courses.

The Bordeaux Management School boasts of holding the “Triple Crown” in international accreditations: AACSB, AMBA, and Equis.  The school offers 12 degree programs, of which 3 are in English, and it has 3200 students, of which 20% are exchange students.

Dean Rassekh based his teaching on his Barney Economic Analysis for Managers course, MBA 614.  He had 30 students in his class.  Approximately half of them were exchange students from around the world and he enjoyed the global diversity of the group. 

As an added benefit, his trip to Bordeaux coincided with the snowstorm that blacked out the northeastern U.S.

The Bordeaux Management School has asked Associate Dean Rassekh to return to teach the managerial economics course in fall 2012.
