After 34 years in the corporate world, I am happy to be teaching students how to become leaders in their own organizations. Together, we discuss academic theories, practical real world cases, meet with business leaders and experience simulated team and board situations that require vision, critical strategic thinking and sensitive persuasive communications. As a clinical faculty member, I bring experience in corporate planning, mergers and acquisitions. I also bring experience in leadership at branded, global companies such as Starbucks, Pillsbury and Kraft, and at entrepreneurial small companies into the classroom. We work to mentor, advise and connect students to the business leaders and internship and career opportunities.
