PhD in Human Sciences, Jacques Pateau teaches Intercultural Management at the Compiègne University of Technology to students from five continents as well as at the ISIT in Paris and the Mannheim University (MBA-Programm ).

His doctoral thesis was devoted to a study of the cultural dimension of communication and management in French and German companies.

Between 1990 and 1993, he conducted a research project funded by the Robert Bosch Foundation.
