About me

I am a Professor in Finance and Entrepreneurship at the University of Montpellier in France. My teaching pedagogy is based on active learning approaches and the use of technology and gamification. I am highly involved with the entrepreneurial ecosystem in France and Colombia,  always in the quest for providing students with better entrepreneurial education and learning experience. My cross-disciplinary research brings together behavioral finance, psychology, and entrepreneurship theories and approaches to explore the behavior and thinking of entrepreneurs. In 2016 I was awarded the prize for Best Ph.D. Thesis in Corporate Finance by the French National Association of Finance. I am the editor and owner of The Faculty, a publication where academics, educators, scientists, students, and everyone who wants to disrupt the education and scientific research system can share stories and thoughts. I share my thoughts and expertise in pedagogical innovation, education and entrepreneurship in my personal blog. You can find me in social media twitter @mangelferrero, Instagram@miss.startup and Linkedin.

Why do you want to be a part of the HundrED Community?

I believe that we need education now more than ever. It is time to question ourselves and our systems and enact the change we all need. It is time to share ideas and develop actions to change our approach to education, science, and research. I believe we need to open the discussion on how we can make our classrooms, curriculum, and schools a more inclusive one. I believe that together we can lead the change.
