Sara J. Adams
"I started teaching because I was so heavily impacted by the accounting faculty at SOU when I was earning my undergraduate degree. My professors helped me get to a place in my education and career that I hadn't thought I was capable of. I wanted to have that impact on students."
Dr. Peter Angstadt
"The content area will provide the foundation for additional, lifelong learning. The class is the beginning of a great adventure."
Dr. Curt Bacon
"I want my students to leave my finance courses with an ability to make sound decisions based on reasonable assumptions, accurate calculations, and ethical reasoning."
Senior Instructor I
"An MBA degree enables opportunities and challenges that might not otherwise be available."
R. John Kaegi
"While college students learn 'how' and 'what,' MBA students gain deeper insight into 'why' systems and economies work the way they do and how to use more analytic and evaluative tools to apply the 'why' to their business circumstances."
Dr. Joan McBee
"I like helping people reach their goals, to not take things at face value, and to feed their curiosity. I like seeing people do more than they thought possible."
Dr. Rene Ordonez
Professor and MBA Coordinator
"Online courses are more challenging than their on-ground counterparts. To be successful in an online program, one should exercise good time management and keep a realistic workload. Hard work is key."
"I want them to learn how to learn. To think critically about numbers, not just take them at face value. How to use numbers to manage the enterprise."
"[An MBA is the] basis to run a business with knowledge of best practices useful in managing a business and people."
Dr. Rattaphon Wuthisatian
"As a teacher, I would like my students to take away a complete and well-organized body of knowledge in economics and finance, the ability to reason constructively through a sequence of logical steps, as well as the ability to develop connections between theories and real-world applications."
