Paul Seaborn Paul Seaborn, Assistant Professor, Department of Management, Daniels College of Business, University of Denver

I am an assistant professor at the Daniels College of Business, University of Denver. I teach undergraduate, graduate and executive students. In 2016 I was the recipient of the Daniels Excellence in Teaching Award and I was one of two finalists for the award in 2015. In 2014 I published one of the first, if not the first, academic teaching case on the marijuana industry in Case Research Journal, “Medical Marijuana Industry Group: Outdoor Advertising in Denver” and I have since published a second case in CRJ, “Uber in Colorado: Seeking Regulatory Certainty”. I am the Faculty Advisor to the Daniels Consulting Firm, a student-run organization that provides consulting opportunities for graduate students.

In Spring 2017 I taught the first ever “Business of Marijuana” course at Daniels (or at any AACSB-accredited business school) and I will teach the course again in Spring 2018. I am also the lead instructor for MGMT 2850 Business & Society, a core undergraduate core, and also teach two consulting courses, one for graduate students and one for undergraduate students, that involve a “real-world” consulting project. I am always looking for potential guest speakers and advisors from the business world that can benefit my students and am also interested in identifying real-world projects that my students can work on.

My research interests include: Non-market strategy/corporate political activity, industry regulation & self-regulation, political economy, entrepreneurship, business models, economics of information. I am also working on a series of research projects related to Colorado’s emerging marijuana industry.

Prior to joining Daniels in 2011 I completed my doctoral studies in Strategic Management at the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. Before pursuing a PhD I worked as a strategy consultant for Mercer Management Consulting (now known as Oliver Wyman), serving a variety of transportation, high-tech, and financial services firms across North America. I also worked for four years as an IT consultant with IBM Global Services, completed an MBA at the Richard Ivey School of Business, University of Western Ontario and a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics at Acadia University.
