I believe that good teaching and learning is based upon: 1) developing understanding of subject matter through critical thinking and enquiry 2) developing self-belief, self-confidence and self-expression 3) combining the above with independent study.
- Which subject(s) do you teach?
I work in most aspects of management and social sciences, from foundation degree to PhD. The past year I have worked with A' Level, final year undergraduate, MBA and PhD students. I am equally at home with beginners as advanced students. My subject areas are core business skills; economics, entrepreneurship, innovation, project management, change management, communication studies, strategic management and planning, branding, PR, CSR, marketing, consumer behaviour, partnership and sponsorship. I also advise on research methodology, especially constructing dissertations and theses from Bachelor's degree to PhD, essay/report writing, personal statements, structure and proofreading and draft appeals for students unhappy with issues surrounding their grades.

Inspirational, supportive, articulate, reliable, expert. Kiran embraces all of these characteristics and more. His knowledge of sports business management and organisation is vast and second to none. He is extremely well-networked and through his contacts can introduce his students to real-life experiences. As a lecturer, he was organised, patient and had the ability to articulate complicated concepts in an easy to understand style I would highly recommend him to any future employer, in academia or business
Kiran was pivotal to my progression into commercial sport. He gave me the confidence, academic foundation & practical insight to pursue a career in a closed-off industry. His lectures were thorough and in-depth providing current & relevant examples & his feedback fair & constructive. To date Kiran has been the most influential person in my academic and professional life; he always went that extra mile, preparing me for interviews, introducing me to useful contacts or giving critical feedback for assessments
Kiran was my professor at the European School of Economics where I studied Sport Management, & Marketing & Sponsorship. He focused the course to motivate his students to learn & succeed to the best of their ability. His lectures were full of realistic examples & he constantly promoted class discussions. He was always available for extra help to ensure I had a complete understanding of the subject matter. After completion Kiran remained available for guidance. I would strongly recommend him as a professor.
Dr Kiran Kamat is an excellent educator. He has consistently shown genuine interest in the progress and development of his students and is always willing to offer support and facilitation. Personally, Kiran has been a tutor and mentor and, most importantly, an inspiration to me over the course of knowing him as my lecturer, supervisor and advisor from The University of Jyvaskyla. He is a source of unwavering inspiration and support that has continued to motivate me to pursue my dream in my academic journey.
Kiran was my lecturer at the European School of Economics, where I studied Sport Management.
He is a very competent teacher, always prepared to answer questions and give good examples, so you have a complete understanding of the subject matter. He was very helpful during the final period of the programme, where I had to write my projects and he was always willing to correct me and to help me add new information. Thanks to him, my knowledge about Sports Management is now very high.
Professor Kamat was my teacher at the European School of Economics for the short course in Sport Management, Marketing & Sponsorship. He is an experienced teacher with high knowledge and enthusiasm. He possesses an exceptional ability to connect with students, motivate them and involve them in active work and discussions around the subject area.
Professor Kamat is an excellent teacher who works hard to inspire his students to perform to the highest level. I would strongly recommend him.
In 2009 I began a degree in Sports Management and Coaching. My lecturer was Kiran Kamat. Kiran was very helpful and always took time to help me when I struggled, going through lecture notes and advising on ways to improve my work. Kiran knew I wanted a 1st Class degree and he put in a lot of effort to ensure I achieved this. I can honestly say it was down to Kiran's ongoing support, patience and effort that I achieved a 1st Class degree. Anyone who is taught, tutored or mentored by Kiran is very fortunate
I truly enjoyed Kiran's lectures. He has considerable knowledge to share with students. A great ability of his is turning your comments into a fair point & then channelling a direction that has meaning & becomes valuable in the context of topic. I haven't seen this ability in many academia professionals. Even when a point of view is not accurate he is able to guide & direct in order to transform it into a positive argument. His strategy helps many people feel empowered to have an opinion & express it.
Kiran is a great professor, but above all a great professional. He takes interest in his students and whether they learn what is taught. He is interested in more than theory, as he also teaches ways of applying theory in practice.
I only had 4 months of classes with him, but these were enough to see the difference in quality of content brought by him and his intention to make students achieve greater things. I would certainly recommend those interested in furthering their education to hire his services.
I felt my skills develop considerably, to the stage where I felt immensely confident whilst undertaking my final A2 in Business Studies. Kiran helped build my confidence, boost my subject knowledge, and instil a well-polished exam technique into my writing, a weak area before. He advised on an extended project qualification, where I graded 96%, exceeding my expectations considerably. His likeable personality and in-depth subject knowledge fully prepared me in ways that other teachers/tutors have been unable
