What is your teaching philosophy for Lasell courses?
“As having gained business and management experience over several years from a global perspective, I am aware that when students come into a university, they are but a few steps away from their professional careers. Although somewhat of a cliché, what is true for a business is also true for its employees, to succeed an individual must learn to be faster, smarter, more creative, and be able to learn from mistakes. How can we prepare students to succeed in this competitive environment? The answer is, at least in part, to move them out of their comfort zone by presenting them with realistic problems that have undefined boundaries and solutions and that require cooperation as well as competition. The goal of this is to help students to learn to be critical thinkers and effective problem solvers so that they can be effective competitors in their careers.

The students should see me as a mentor and guide in this particular journey of their life which develops them both personally, professionally & academically. I encourage them to participate as much in classroom discussions and give them that comfort and platform they are looking up to showcase their knowledge and talent.”
