Playfully, one colleague, introduced Dario Knez (BTh, MSc IT, MBA, DBA cand.) with 4A: Alternative – Academic – Artistic – Administrator not knowing that could be very close to Dario’s desired positioning between the world of theory and practice.
Dario’s love for yoga and broad IT knowledge fructified in 2010 with an Online Campus of Bhaktivedanta College (BCOC – https://bcoc.bhaktivedantacollege.com/. Leading the team Dario organised the whole department, from technical development, marketing and direct teaching which he still does. He also trained a number of faculty which joined the BCOC team. At the present day (September 2020) Bhaktivedanta College’s BCOC has a prosperous story with more than 250 delivered courses with more than 4,500 students attending the courses.
Based on the success of BCOC Dario gathered and headed an international team of experts in starting a business department of Bhaktivedanta College under the name of Alfred Ford School of Management (AFSM – https://aford.be/). The project is launched in May 2017 with the first intake of MBA students. Dario was instrumental in developing curricula, organising faculty members and setting up the strategic plan. At AFSM Dario is serving as Dean of Students and teaching the Strategic Management module. Dario is a member of the Bhaktivedanta College and Alfred Ford School of Management (www.aford.be) Board of Directors.
