Jan started a Ph.D. in Information Management and was a lecturer in Electronic Business at the University of Cologne. Before that he graduated as MBA with a focus on Electronic Business, Accounting, and Entrepreneurship, having studied at the WHU, the LUISS Rome, and the University of Bath School of Management.
