Andreoli teaches courses on finance, private equity, strategy and business planning, and is known to actively pursuing how practice and academia (or ‘art and science’) benefit each other. He is also vice-chair of the Exam Committee and co-developed the Nyenrode strategy 2020-2024 as faculty representative. In addition to Nyenrode, Job serves on the advisory board of a venture capital firm and takes part in the research team of an online venture valuator.
