One of my passions is teaching and learning. My brilliant, kind undergraduate and MBA students have always been a huge source of hope and energy for me. As a teacher, I aim to bridge classroom activities with real-world applications so that my students will leave my courses equipped with the skills they need to thrive as business and community leaders.
Here are the courses I have taught in Management, Behavioral Economics and Leadership:
Managerial Decision Making
Behavioral economics provides an understanding of how people’s decisions deviate from “optimal” choices and consequences of such deviations. This course will not only discuss when individuals make decisions that deviate from the predictions of economics, but also focus on the implications of these systematic decision biases for managers and policy makers.
This course enables students to develop their expertise in managing negotiations. It integrates existing theory and research with personal experiences and ideas. Using hands-on exercises, readings, and lively discussions, students build and hone their ability to understand, adapt to, and evaluate the personal, social, and situational dynamics of negotiations.
Leading and Managing—OB Core course
This course examines the impact of individual, group, and organizational factors on organizational performance and employee attitudes. Topics include leadership, perceptions, attitudes, motivation, group development, norms and cohesiveness, empowerment, conflict, negotiations, culture, structure, stress, innovation, and change.
Psychology and Economics
This course examines economic and psychological influences on individual behavior. The applications of this framework include topics of procrastination, limited self-control, bounded rationality, choices under risk, markets, behavioral finance, consumption, savings, nudges, and public policy.
Before my behavioral scientist days, I also enjoyed teaching math
This course is the study of linear algebra, the fundamental subject underlying large-scale computational problems. Examples draw upon everyday experience, economics, engineering, natural science, and statistics.
This course is an introduction to multivariable calculus which is, on its face, simply the extension of the ideas of calculus from one dimension to multiple dimensions. This extension is worthwhile because in most areas of endeavor, functions are functions of more than one variable, and it incorporates geometric intuition, vector valued functions, optimization, and probability, along with other topics.
