You are so invested in all of us, and that means a lot. ... I’m not sure what path I want to take in Kogod yet, but you’ve given me a lot to think about. ... and I can’t thank you enough for an excellent introduction."
L. O., Spring 2022

J. M., Fall 2021
"... thank you for being a great professor and for a great class. Having international business at first was scary as a female because I feel as if in a lot of countries it’s rare to see females with the major due to culture standards. But I wanted to say thank you, because after taking your class I definitely feel more confident with my choice and want to continue learning about it...."
A. A., Fall 2021
"... I learned a lot in this class. I can see my progress from my two exams and other assignments. Every meeting and discussion this semester is very meaningful... Thank you so much!.”
