What is your teaching philosophy?
Faculty with significant professional experience, strong academic credentials,
and a real interest in educating students is critical. For students, I am convinced
that an outstanding education requires not only conceptual understanding of the
application of concepts, but also the ability to apply that knowledge to solve
My approach to problem-based learning is at the cornerstone of my philosophy to
teaching. Key skills, such as critical thinking, business analysis, creativity, the
ability to effectively communicate in writing and orally are also requirements of a
premier education. I believe it is the responsibility of the student to earn the grade
for the class based on focus, motivation, organization, and diligent study.
Students should strive to be interactive in the virtual or face-to-face classroom to
contribute and learn from other students.
