During my educational training, I have been fortunate to have learned from many distinguished academicians. However, Dr. Smith presents a very unique combination of academic excellence, business acumen and cultural experiences that is rarely seen in academia. As a result of his skills, abilities and knowledge, I have grown significantly in my intellectual pursuits and international business perspective.
More specifically, Dr. Smith’s extensive international travel and personal experiences lead to substantial classroom discussion and high quality student engagement. His brilliant command of classroom management ensured that all students had a vibrant voice during classroom sessions.
As part of our EMBA program, Dr. Smith served as a faculty representative during our international business residency to Sao Paulo, Brazil and Santiago, Chile. During that trip, Dr. Smith demonstrated exemplary leadership skills, together with a masterful integration of classroom theory/teachings with “real-world” applications to the global companies we visited.
