Teaching


Entrepreneurship

Instructor, The Wharton School, Fall 2017, B.Sc. elective course

This course integrates the material introduced in business fundamental courses and applies it to the design and evaluation of new ventures. The purpose of this course is to explore the many dimensions of new venture creation and growth and to foster innovation and new business formations in independent and corporate settings. The course addresses both a theoretical perspective on venture initiation and the application of writing an actual business plan. Students will get this hands-on experience through the formation and ongoing work of venture teams that will design a comprehensive business development plan for a particular start-up company.

Managing Strategic Networks

Teaching Fellow for Professor Marissa King, Yale School of Management, Spring 2017, M.B.A. elective course

Network analysis is both a theoretical perspective and a methodology. Each week we focus on one set of network concepts applied in different organizational settings. We begin with the simplest network structures and move towards more complex arrangements of people and organizations. The first part of the course examines the way in which patterns of social interaction influence people’s ability to attain goals such as finding a job or getting promoted. We then examine how networks affect organizations and their ability to implement change and realize competitive advantage. Finally, we examine how increasing social connectedness is transforming business.

Innovator

Teaching Fellow for Professor Rodrigo Canales, Yale School of Management, Spring 2016, Executive M.B.A. core course

This class uses the Innovator’s Perspective to study issues of idea generation, idea evaluation, idea refinement and development, the establishment of creative projects, and fostering and sustaining innovation in organizations. Through a combination of exercises, cases, lectures, and discussions, we enable executives to generate ideas in a number of contexts and evaluate and improve their own ideas and those of others.

 Strategic Management

Teaching Fellow for Professor Amandine Ody-Brasier, Yale School of Management, Spring 2013, M.B.A. elective course

The course provides strategic frameworks around the central question of how to organize, manage, and change a firm to develop sustainable competitive advantage. Interactive lectures and case studies cover various aspects of corporate strategy, including competitive dynamics, business models, competitive positioning within an industry, and the resources and capabilities needed to create and maintain competitive advantage.

Big Data

Teaching Fellow for Professors Donald Lee and Vahideh Manshadi, Yale School of Management, Spring 2015, M.B.A. elective course

The course provides an introduction to Data Science for business professionals using the software tool XLMiner and the statistical language R, one of the languages along with Python that are the industry standards for the analysis of massive datasets. The course complements the core Probability & Statistics course in which students learn to build classical statistical models to explain causal relationships among variables.

Managing Groups and Teams

Teaching Fellow for Professors Amy Wrzesniewski and Victoria Brescoll, Yale School of Management, Fall 2014, 2015, M.B.A. core course

The course covers the theory and practice of leading, managing, and functioning in task-performing groups and teams. The course has two primary goals: first, to provide students with a conceptual framework for analyzing group dynamics, diagnosing performance problems, and designing appropriate interventions, and second, to help students develop practical skills for building effective groups and teams.
