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

In BUS 209 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.
