Teaching and Research Interests

I believe that teaching is about maintaining an environment where both the teacher and the students learn and benefit from the shared experience. In my classes I emphasize critical and creative thinking, as well as real-world applications of the concepts and theories in modern management. I teach primarily Introduction to Business, Entrepreneurship, Enterprise Development, Strategic Management, International Business Management, Family Business Management, and Small Business Consulting- an experiential course. I have also supervised both undergraduate and graduate students.

My research interests lie in the field of entrepreneurship and its role in economic and community development. Amongst the questions I try to answer in my research are: what are the traits and skills that lead an entrepreneur to start and grow a successful business? What is the role of creativity and innovation in influencing entrepreneurs? How does the entrepreneur grow a new business into a small- and medium-sized business, and beyond? How can social entrepreneurship assist in local economic development? How do entrepreneurs formulate and implement strategy? How do entrepreneurs plan and manage succession issues into the next generation? What are the issues confronting family businesses?
