University Teaching

I have taught a wide range of classes including international business, sales management, marketing management, marketing strategy, and personal selling. My particular expertise is in sales management and marketing strategy, subjects I have taught at both undergraduate and graduate levels, although my international research focus and extensive travels have grown my international knowledge to the point where I now capably teach undergraduate and MBA classes in international business.

My undergraduate class sizes are typically 30 – 60 students and my MBA classes are 40 – 50 students.  At both my present and prior institutions I have also taught large classes, with 150 to 250 students while overseeing Teaching Assistants.

My teaching tends to be well-appreciated by students.  Along with many students sending thank you notes, others asking me to mentor during  their careers, and positive class evaluations, several greatly appreciated awards have been received:

2011 MBA Professor of the Year Award

2010 MBA Professor of the Year Award

2006 Favorite Instructor Award
