Christine Demen-Meier

I am an EHL alumna. After my EHL diploma, I went on to obtain an MBA in integrated management from the Haute Ecole de Gestion de Fribourg (business school), followed by a doctorate in management science at the University of Basse Normandie, France. I have presented papers at numerous conferences and congresses and published in various specialized journals on Entrepreneurship in SMEs. Long experience as owner-manager of hotel restaurants which I created and launched, allows me to bring in-depth knowledge to my courses contributing to the success of an SME. I am particularly interested in the possibilities of innovation and continue my research into new business tools and models and into different approaches to change management (complete break and new start or gradual implementation of change) through the Food & Beverage Industry Chair at EHL. I am a member of EHL’s Scholarship Commission. I am also a member of the jury for the Junior Enterprise competitions, which aim to encourage entrepreneurship among students and award prizes for innovative projects.
