Using his practical experience as a consultant and research manager, Dr Meents has given courses and supervised internships and theses within AMSIB since 2012. His current teaching activities focus on subjects such as the management of buyer-seller relationships and of supply chains, and the design and execution of applied business research.

Prior to joining AMSIB, Dr Meents was a faculty member of the VU University Amsterdam (Department of Economics and Business Administration) for ten years, teaching a variety of courses related to e-business, logistics, information systems, online marketing, business process redesign, and academic skills. His desire to contribute to more practically relevant research and educational programs in an internationally oriented, ambitious and quality focused business school led to his decision to join AMSIB.

Building on the skills and knowledge obtained in an IT management traineeship, Dr Meents has held both full-time and part-time positions in business throughout his career. As a consultant and research manager he has been involved in e-business, online marketing and customer experience management projects for various clients.

In addition to his consulting and applied business research activities, Dr Meents has devoted much of his career to conducting scientific research. His papers resulting from this research have been published in several conference proceedings, and have appeared in journals such as Computers in Human Behaviour, the European Journal of Information Systems, Information & Management, and the Journal of the Association for Information Systems. Dr Meents’ current research interests include topics such as e-business, emerging technologies, buyer-seller relationships, and research design.

Dr Meents received his PhD in e-commerce from the VU University Amsterdam, where he also earned his master’s degree in Business Administration.
