In which online MBA programs do you teach?
What do you want students to take away from your classes? What do you want them to learn?
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.
What advice would you give to those considering the online MBA program?
An MBA has long been considered as one of the most predictable paths to success, as many MBA graduates benefit not only from a return on investment through salary increases, but also by in-depth knowledge, skills and abilities needed for future professional success. SOU online MBA program provides students with considerable advantages with the most prominent one being the freedom to complete a graduate degree around career and family obligations (e.g., the ability to pursue an MBA while maintaining a career; completing and receiving an MBA without relocation; flexible scheduling options that balance school and work; and a virtual learning environment that is always available and accessible).
What is the one book you think everyone should read?
The Speed of Trust: The One Thing that Changes Everything by Stephen M. R. Covey.
