Teaching
  • BUS 194 Personal Finance
  • BUS 301 Financial Analysis
  • BUS 355 Corporate Finance
  • BUS 440 Investments
  • BUS 455 Financial Derivatives

I teach students how to make meaningful financial decisions from both the corporate side and the investor side.

In BUS 301 Financial Analysis, students learn how to make financial decisions for corporations. In BUS 194 Personal Finance and BUS 440 Investments, I teach students how to take care of their financials and make investment decisions.

To me, teaching is a process that provides my students some important guidelines and concepts in finance that they can use and apply in their future career–and personal life!

That is, instead of being a fisherman fishing for my students, I teach them how to fish. I believe that some of my talented students will end up doing a better job than I as a fisherman.

Favorite verses in the Bible: “In nothing be anxious, but in everything, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; And the peace of God, which surpasses every man’s understanding, will guard your hearts and your thoughts in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4, 6-7.
