The global pandemic situation has diminished the opportunities for me to communicate and network with students and potential employers. Accordingly, I decided to build this website, which hopefully will also complement the online teaching efforts I am currently engaged in.

I will be teaching the Capstone Strategy course in Spring 2021. Please check later the Course Materials page for details and required materials.
