What should students take away from your classes? What do they learn?

The decisions you'll make as a manager matter to people’s lives and may have consequences for future generations. Moral managers think beyond short-term financial success.

What advice would you give to those considering your online degree program?

Online courses offer flexibility but are not less work than face-to-face courses; everything you might have said in class must now be typed into discussion boards.

What is the value of an advanced degree in the field in which you teach?

You will bring a comprehensive body of advanced business knowledge to any job you pursue.

Why did you start teaching?

I enjoy learning, and teaching is a great way to share what I enjoy.

What is the one book you think everyone should read?

This is a tough question! There must be a thousand, but I'll say "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey because he focuses on values and balancing your work and personal lives.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students may not know.
