Professor Maik Schneider Professor

Member of the University of Bath internal coaching network.


Maik's professional role has involved mentoring − in particular early career researchers − for many years. He qualified as a coach in 2018. To date, most of his coaching experience has been external to the University and includes coaching related to leadership roles, career progression/change and work-life balance. Maik became a member of the internal coaching network in 2021.

Maik's approach to coaching centres around everyone (and every team) being unique in their personality and experiences. Everyone will embark on their own journey to discover and develop their potential to achieve their goals − whether that’s in relation to a new leadership role, effective communication or building greater resilience. He is passionate about guiding and supporting this process as a coach.


Particular areas of interest in relation to coaching:

  • leadership and aspiring leaders
  • communication and interpersonal skills
  • resilience and stress reduction


Maik is a Professor of Economics and the Director of Research at the Department of Economics. Currently his main research focus is on the Economics of Artificial Intelligence, and the path to a future net zero economy.

In addition to his research, which he enjoys, his professional role involves leadership − as Director of Research or in research projects, effective communication with different types of audiences and mentoring and coaching early career researchers, colleagues and students. It is this area of his professional role, together with a broader personal interest, that sparked his enthusiasm for coaching.
