At the undergraduate level I teach Principles of Marketing, (MKTG 310) primarily using a lecture format augmented with a competitive market simulation I co-authored called NewShoes. At the graduate level I teach the basic Marketing course (Marketing Theory and Practice MBUS627). This course uses current readings in Marketing and relies heavily on case analysis, with written work and oral presentations. This course emphasizes making effective Marketing decisions. I also teach a graduate course called Creativity and Intuition (MBUS688). This 1 credit course examines the soft side of decision-making. As the course title indicates, creativity, intuition, and so forth are studied. Periodiclly I also teach the undergrad course Marketing Strategy(MKTG 419) using case analysis, with written work and oral presentations, and a decision simulation as the primary teaching tools, augmented with lectures. The primary thrust of my research has been in the area of behavioral decision-making focusing in particular on consumer and respondent decision-making and information processing.
