TEACHING PHILOSOPHY (short version)
My ultimate intent in teaching is to instill the essential inspiration of going beyond a superficial understanding of the various management problems and strategic issues students have to tackle as part of their coursework. In this way, I constantly endeavor, on one hand, to develop their capabilities for critical thinking and personal (re)appraisal and, on the other, to cultivate practically impactful problem solving and decision making abilities.

By applying a handful of wealthy instances taken from a variety of sciences (biology, economics, ethology, history, neurology, philosophy, physics, psychology, sociology and others), my intention is to infuse a humanistic view of management. My humanistic view of management deems the students as individuals and groups who bring unique values, goals, interests, and backgrounds, and are inescapably posited at the center of the whole learning experience.

By deploying a balanced mix of teaching methods (e.g., lectures, case based sessions, multimedia interactions, group-work, experiential exercises, and simulations), my purpose is to facilitate students to acquire the set of fundamental learning skills that can last over their life span, thereby preparing them to cope resourcefully with the current fast-changing high-tech society, as well as to make the difference in our knowledge-based and financially driven economy.
