I love teaching Carlson full time MBA students. They are always intellectually curious and very engaged in the classroom. I often wonder if I am teaching them, or vice-versa!

Developing strong communication skills can change a good employee to a great employee. It is a privilege to work with the Carlson MBAs to strengthen their business communication skills and directly impact their future careers.

Associate Professor612-624-4171jkammeye@umn.edu

There is great relationship between teaching and research at Carlson. MBA students have amazing insights into the world of work based on their experiences. At the same time, evidence-based management studies help students discover how to measure and improve employee attitudes and motivation in their organizations. Every class session provides an opportunity for both the students and me to discover new ideas, and that's very exciting.

Statistics has been (wrongly) considered as a dry and boring subject. So part of my teaching philosophy is to make the learning process fun and entertaining. This has happened repeatedly in the past. And now I look forward to working with another group of brilliant MBA students in the new semester!

The Carlson School of Management is a wonderful co-location of great students, companies, and scholars. I get to work on research with leading companies in Minneapolis/St. Paul one day, and the next day discuss these insights with our MBA students.

I love working with MBA students because they bring such a variety of experience to the classroom. For example, one semester I had a doctor, a lawyer, a military officer, a Teach for America junior high teacher, and a political organizer all in one group. This amazing diversity of experience creates a really dynamic and engaging classroom.

The most rewarding aspect of teaching in Carlson's MBA Program is witnessing the change in the students as they work through all the challenges and grow in wisdom and maturity. As they take their new skills and knowledge out into the world after graduation, I get to feel as if I am part of the reason that they accomplish awesome and sometimes even world-changing success.

Teaching accounting to MBAs is a difficult but exciting endeavor. While the diversity in students' experience and background poses a challenge, it is rewarding to see students' fear and apprehension transform into a clear understanding of how vital a role accounting plays in business decision-making and in achieving a company's strategic goals.

Mani Subramani

Associate Professor 612-624-3522subra010@umn.edu

I enjoy interacting with the bright young minds we have in our program and I really appreciate learning the new perspectives that students bring to issues involving information technology based on their own experiences.

In my classes, my central concern is to help students understand the nuances of organizations' and individual's use of information technologies so that they can be more effective in their own roles. In particular, I try to build an appreciation for the processes and the context of application of technologies in firms so that students can begin to become active participants in how their firms create value through information technologies.

My research focuses on knowledge management and the management of technologies in organizations and my research helps me bring the latest thinking on these issues into the classroom.

Carlos Torelli

Associate Professor 612-625-2903ctorelli@umn.edu

I enjoy teaching MBA students at Carlson because their curiosity pushes me to integrate my managerial experience in global companies with my theoretical knowledge in cultural psychology and marketing in order to find creative solutions to the unique problems they devise.

Joel Waldfogel

Joel Waldfogel

Professor 612-626-7128jwaldfog@umn.edu

Economics is a powerful tool, and MBAs are action oriented. So teaching economics to MBAs is exciting because I'm sharing powerful tools with people who will use them directly.

The spread of the Internet and related digital technologies has revolutionized many industries. The framework of basic economics provides a great way to understand what's happening, so I can use basic ideas and economic models from class to discuss the way the media industries I study are being transformed.

Aks Zaheer

Professor 612-626-8389azaheer@umn.edu

I greatly enjoy the energizing vitality and deep curiosity of our MBAs. They exhibit a genuine hunger to learn and I find the process of co-creating a challenging yet joyful learning experience in the Strategy course enormously satisfying. My teaching philosophy is to encourage MBA students to push themselves toward deeper levels of thinking and analysis in the Strategy space so that they come away with a solid and even instinctive understanding of Strategy issues and approaches.

I bring my research into the classroom all the time in different ways. Most directly, I use papers that I have written in my research areas of strategic alliances and mergers and acquisitions in the classroom as these represent the most current thinking in those fields. I also bring to bear a researcher's approach to answering Strategy research questions, which are fundamentally concerned with why and when firms succeed and fail.
