Camille Meyer



University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business


Camille is Associate Professor in Social Innovation and Entrepreneurship and director of the Executive MBA at the University of Cape Town Graduate School of Business, South Africa. His teaching and research adopt an interdisciplinary perspective to shed light on entrepreneurial, financial and ethical processes involved in the management of social innovations and natural resources. This perspective considers new approaches to business such as developing new financial models, social innovations, collaborative management and stakeholder partnerships for commons governance. His previous work in higher education includes academic roles at the Free University of Brussels (ULB, Belgium) and the University of Victoria (Canada). Prior to moving into higher education, he worked for the international training centre of the International Labour Organization in Turin (Italy).
