    RESEARCH INTERESTS

    Current research interests are directed solely toward pedagogical research in a variety of interrelated areas, including:

    • first-year gateway business "experience" seminars;
    • self-marketing and the utilization of marketing principles in the job search;
    • applying various approaches to classroom group formation; team-building.

    Other areas of interest include applied areas of managerial ethics and strategic issues in social responsibility. This includes identifying critical success factors in managing the ethical organization, the ethical decision-making process, and the ethics of advertising to children.

     

    RESEARCH IN PROGRESS

    My focus is on both academic research as well as professional scholarship.

    My goal is to write approximately one marketing- and career-related article a month for various distribution, so this area is constantly being researched and always a work in progress.

    At the same time, I am also working on a number of research projects centered on career development and team-building in the business curriculum.
