Marc teaches business at University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona) where he is Associate Professor and at INSEAD (Fontainebleau and Singapore) where he is Visiting Professor of ethics. His core expertise is in decision making, in particular the role of ethical values in business decisions. He proposes frameworks to improve decision-making in the presence of dilemmas between economic, environmental, social and individual values.

At the practical level, Marc has worked and taught about ethical rationality, value-based strategic management, responsible leadership, communication in ethical crisis, corporate social responsibility, codes of conduct or e-business ethics. At the theoretical level, Marc does research on the rationality of human behaviour. Studying the mathematical foundations of the theory of choice, he uses objective and experimental methods to better reveal the subjectivity of human behaviour.
His work has appeared in publications such as The Journal of Mathematical Psychology, Theory and Decision, Discrete Mathematics, The European Journal of Operational Research, The Journal of Economics and Business Organizations, The Journal of Business Ethics, Business Ethics: A European Review…

Marc holds a Ph.D. from INSEAD in Decision Sciences (1999). He has graduated from the Paris Graduate Management School (ESCP) in 1991 and has a two-year undergraduate degree in mathematics from University Paris VI (1986).

Before becoming an academic scholar, Marc has been "New Applications Manager" for Ion Beam Applications, a Belgian high-tech company producing and selling particle accelerators and has been "Chargé d’Affaires" for the international development of the refining and distribution branch of the oil company Elf Aquitaine.

Marc is also a rock-climber of deep passion. He has been climbing all his life and has extensively travelled, opening and repeating some of the most renowned and hardest climbing routes in the world. He lives in Barcelona with his wife and their two daughters.
