Interests & Philosophy

My teaching interests span a range of strategic and technical subjects, including Business Impacts of Emerging Technologies, IT Strategy, Enterprise Systems, Business Process Analysis & Design, Social Media & Virtual Communities, Mobile Apps, Project Management, and System Analysis & Design. My teaching philosophy is influenced by my belief that as a business school faculty, I am part of an important group of individuals who craft future CEOs and business leaders, not just managers. I make conscious efforts in this direction through my teaching and mentorship. I not only bring insights from my research into my classroom, but in sync with my belief in continuous learning, provide my students access to my latest knowledge artifacts by means of my blog and twitter feed, after they have passed beyond the boundaries of the classroom.  I aim to instill the quest for knowledge and a zest for innovation in my students, and inspire them to challenge all assumptions and envision a better tomorrow of endless possibilities enabled by technology.
