Why I Teach at Houghton

As an alum of Houghton my strongest learnings were developed in classrooms where the professor had “real world” experience in the subject matter they taught. The hands-on experience conveyed what really mattered once I and my peers left the classroom. I desire to impart credible experience and knowledge to students so that they can go out and make a positive and life-changing impact in the world within themselves and to those around them. I use factual cases published from the leading business schools globally to enhance the learning experience.
