Title of Dissertation:
White Collar Teaching – Bi-Directional Value Creation through Practitioners in Higher Education
Abstract of Dissertation:
The concept of dual students is present in academia and has found it’s very own justification throughout the last years. However, with universities and industries alike developing a third mission, which is to properly interlink themselves in order to create better synergies and value, the question for dual academics arises. This dissertation seeks to answer if, and if so how, dual academics work successfully and how they can help co-create value in a bi-directional flow. The research aims to equally profit from and inform discussions with decision makers in academia, industry and public policy.
