Throughout my career, I have taught numerous courses in Management, Leadership and Entrepreneurship in the undergraduate, graduate, MBA and EMBA and received very positive feedback from students in relation to teaching, which is a source of tremendous pride and inspiration, and which have earned me several awards and honors including the Olayan School of Business Best Teacher Award in 2005 and the AUB Teaching Excellence Award for 2006. I believe excellence in teaching should also remain core to the mission of any academic institution, and balancing this with excellence in research is invariably a worthy and important endeavor.
