Having worked in the private sector industry, international organizations and universities, EU Munich’s academic dean, Dr. Olivier Brenninkmeijer, applies his experience developing quality and integrity within academic degree programs and professional development.  He holds a Ph.D. from the Graduate Institute, University of Geneva, and degrees from the University of British Columbia, Canada. In recent years, he has focused on pedagogical methods to enhance quality in education and has completed the Swiss Certificate in training of teachers. As an academic, he has published two books, numerous articles and conducted research on cross-sector governance.  What fascinates Dr. Brenninkmeijer most in research and in higher education is to bridge gaps between cultures and sectors to discover areas of convergence where learning and human development become most effective and dynamic.
