Thought Leadership

-       Developments in technology are dynamically impacting the field of business - use of cloud computing applications, smart phones, etc. - and continued integration of technology in the workplace will be a steadfast trend that today’s students will be required to integrate into their daily work routine.

-       To be effective in today’s college classroom requires an individual to bring slices of today’s culture into the classroom - music, entertainment, fashion, military and sports- as examples to engage and motivate students to apply theory to real world cases.

-       On the other side, individuals ingrained in the business world must have knowledge of popular culture in music, dance and fashion in order to adequately understand these case studies and apply them both inside and outside the classroom.
