Professional Statement

Finance is probably the most math-intensive concentration in the School of Business and Management. I therefore assign my students many calculation problems. However, a good business executive needs many other skills: including writing, speaking and asking the right questions. I try to design my courses to address all those skills, through case studies, group work, reports and presentations.
