Upon graduating Aurelie began her professional career as a junior consultant at Arthur Andersen/Deloitte. Later on, she joined the strategy department at the University of Louvain as an Assistant Professor. While at the university she researched and published a number of articles on organisational strategy and corporate responsibility and taught Corporate Strategy for the MBA class.

Aurelie is passionate about understanding and researching organisational behaviour. Last year, she earned an MSc in Organisational Behaviour from LSE and completed her Master’s dissertation on organisational identification in ethically-challenged industries.
