An MBA is more than a credential. It is a process that combines all your experiences—all that you do and strive for in the business world—with the competencies required to become a leader in digital-era organizations.

Why did you start teaching?

Since childhood, the only career that appealed to me was teaching. I consider it profound to make a difference in someone else's knowledge base and to contribute to their understanding in technical areas. My goal has always been to teach, as I enjoy witnessing students develop and master their knowledge, skills and abilities in my classes, and I pursued no other profession for any significant period of time.

Tell us something interesting about yourself that your students might not know.

I am an avid runner. I run marathons and half marathons, when time permits.
