At Daniels, I was the lead instructor for MGMT 2850 Business & Society (previously Public Policy & Business), a required course for all undergraduate students that focuses on the interaction between business, government and society. Specific topics included individual and organizational ethics, corporate social responsibility, business & politics, regulation, crisis management, and globalization. In Fall 2015 we launched a Friday Business & Society speaker series for all MGMT 2850 students that brought high-profile individuals (Former Governor Dick Lamm, Ambassador Chris Hill, Will McCollum of Uber Colorado, etc.) to campus to speak on topics relevant to the course.

I also taught both a graduate and undergraduate “Introduction to Management Consulting” course and served as faculty advisor to the Daniels Consulting Firm, a graduate student group for those interested in learning about consulting and working on pro-bono real-world consulting engagements. In both of these roles I had extensive involvement with the local consulting industry, engaging with a wide range of guest speakers and outside advisors from industry.
As a Rotman PhD student, I co-taught the Business-Government Relations MBA elective course with Prof. George Fleischmann. Course Information
I consider learning to be one of the most exciting, satisfying experiences in life and I seek to generate a similar enthusiasm for learning among my students. I also see teaching as being highly complementary to my research as a source of inspiration and new ideas. Given my teaching experiences as an assistant professor, PhD and MBA student and while working as a strategy consultant, I am comfortable teaching at all levels within the business school. My teaching interests span the areas of core strategy, non-market and political strategy, cooperative strategy, consulting, entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility.
