I teach core strategy and entrepreneurship courses in undergraduate, MBA, Executive MBA, and Ph.D. programs.  

  • My courses utilize the case method. I focus on generating interactive classroom discussions and guiding students through structured analyses of managerial decision-making in realistic business situations.
  • My courses often involve experiential learning via "hands-on" projects and assignments in which student teams help local non-profit and for-profit organizations identify and solve strategic business problems.
