Teacher International Business
Wouter is a lecturer of various subjects and teaches mainly in the first year, in which he is also a study career coach. The propaedeutic phase is his ‘baby’: he combines his teaching and coaching activities with his role of Propaedeutic year coordinator.


Wouter started his career in higher education after ten years of business experience. He worked as a quality manager for a Dutch home textile company in Poland, did projects for a Dutch insurance company and the Dutch Police as a business consultant, and was location manager in the semi-education industry. 2015 was when he joined the Institute for International Business Studies at HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht. He has taught a wide variety of subjects, ranging from Business Process Management to Organisational Behaviour & Culture, and from Finance to Market Entry Strategy. In addition, he has been a study career coach and graduation supervisor for four years and he was member of the institute’s graduation committee for a few years. He was active as a design lead and member of the development team for the new curriculum that we started in September 2018. Since then, he has combined his teaching and coaching activities with the role of semester coordinator and propaedeutic year coordinator, on top of being examiner and supervisor for the two internships in our programme.
