IMPORTANT NOTE on CLOSED Classes: All the online classes and many of the on-campus classes close quickly. You should register ASAP if you are interested in any class. If you change your mind, please drop the class immediately so others can enroll. If the class is closed, consider the Wait List procedures; be aware of the rules and the limitations. Otherwise, consider these options: 1) register for another section if available; 2) register for another class; 3) consider registering in a future semester; 4) show up for the first day of an on-campus class and discuss with the instructor; or 5) forget about it and move on. The instructor will not intervene with the wait list procedure.

Please be aware that, once a class reaches maximum enrollment and “closes,” on or after the first day of the semester, even if “available” spaces appear on SURF due to drops, it is within the instructor's complete discretion on whether to add more students at that time. Drops after the first day are normal attrition and are factored in when setting the maximum enrollment. The class has started and important assignments and subject matter have already been covered. Please do not email the instructor. Thank you for your understanding.

Teaching Philosophy/Style and Class Management/Activities

I have been fortunate to have experienced a variety of different teaching styles and techniques during my broad professional and academic careers.  And the one thing I have learned is that there is not one system or style of teaching that is always effective.  Thus, I strive to teach my classes using a combination of teaching principles and I am always adapting my style to more effectively meet the needs of today’s bright students.  As for example, I utilize Twitter and YouTube pretty extensively in my teaching methodology.

Most importantly though, I structure my classes to be engaging, thought-provoking and interactive.  This allows students to learn, contribute and share ideas during the class lectures and discussions.  Keep in mind that for this method to be effective, the students must come to class prepared with the reading and assignment requirements of that particular class.

Moreover, I take a lot of time in preparing and customizing each class lecture to contain relevant current business stories, cases or events to tie directly to the course book material.  Therefore, the students are always getting the practical application of the book content.

Lastly, I am a big believer of bringing in guest speakers and having field trips during the term to further enhance the learning experience of students. This is perhaps the most enriching aspect of my classes because you will gain and learn first hand experience from professionals and businesses that have demonstrated success in their fields.
