Students & Teaching

I currently teach courses in Raising Entrepreneurial Capital (Entrepreneurial Finance), Entrepreneurial Leadership (Entrepreneurial Management), and Opportunity Recognition.

Previously, I’ve taught Ph.D. seminars in Organizational Theory (doctoral level), as well as courses in Strategic Management and Entrepreneurial Feasibility Analysis. I have been heaviliy involved in AACSB assessment/assurance of learning, developing new entrepreneurship courses, and in designing courses for online interactive delivery, including pedagogical design work for a highly-ranked Online MBA curriculum.

My teaching style is semi-Socratic. With increasing volumes of information available freely, my philosophy is to develop and reinforce entrepreneurial thinking skills through inclusive discussion. However, this is the style that seems to work best at present. In the classroom, I view myself as the “chief student.” First, that means that I’m the most excited to explore and learn. Second, that role means that I’m continuously learning from the class. I seek to forever improve and adapt how I teach in order to best engage my students.
