Teaching

In the Spring of 2019, I will be the instructor for MAN 4723 – Strategic Management (# 15953). 
My office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1030-1130 and by appointment. 

All required materials will be posted at the UF e-learning site.
In this section, I may post news or research articles that are relevant to the class and that may be of interest to you, but by no means necessary.
