My main goal is to see my students learn. Students often ask me why I teach and why I’m not in industry seeking greater financial rewards. In short, I get a great deal of personal satisfaction from teaching. I enjoy providing students with the contemporary financial tools and techniques that have proven to be successful in the real world. I enjoy learning from my students as much as I hope they enjoy learning from me As an instructor, I am responsible for leading students to and through the information they are expected to learn and to test them from time to time on how well they have mastered this information. I emphasize in all my courses the relevance and usefulness of each topic for real world situations and practical problem solving. I will endeavor to present information in a form that my students can understand, and I expect them to learn this information well enough to pass courses to be taught. Personal contact with students is essential to my approach. Many need encouragement to talk to their instructors, so I emphasize my availability for informal discussion and my willingness to help them sort out any problems they have with what they are learning. In addition to my interaction with students in classes, I maintain an open door policy, and spend a large part of my day interacting with students on a one-on-one basis My experience as an instructor is greatly enriched by this contact with students. Furthermore, I tried very hard to keep in touch with my students once they leave my classes, and still have strong connections with many former students who have since gone to graduate school or into the work force. I played an instrumental and leading role in the curriculum development of the Finance program, this has led to the establishment of the Department of Finance and Economics in 2012-2113, and I have been the Chair of the Department from 2011-2016 and currently I’m the Director of MBA program. In addition, I’m the chair of the UOS Financial Market committee, which resulted in the establishment of this market. Also, I was the coordinator of Sharjah Islamic Center for Islamic Banking Studies for more than three years that led to the establishment of this Center. My vision for the future in academic teaching is directly connected with the above mentioned three leading roles at the University of Sharjah. My vision can be summarized as follows: Firstly, as Professor of Finance, my target is to make the Finance Program the most leading program on the college and the country level, with more emphasis on the adoption of new teaching methods and the use of IT in teaching, particularly the use of software in the Finance courses, in order to make the maximum benefits of the establishment of the UOS Financial Market. In addition, I will concentrate more on the curriculum development, as we need to submit the accreditation file for the full accreditation. Secondly, for the Financial Market, of which I am proud to make our University the pioneer in the region in this regard, I will also work to utilize the financial market for academic purpose. In this regard, I will work with my colleagues to make it part of the curriculum for more than 50 percent of the Finance courses. In addition, my aspiration is to have a live connection with the regional and international markets. Thirdly, regarding the Sharjah Islamic Center for Islamic Banking Studies; as a coordinator leading a team that have worked on the establishment of this Center, I will continue in my support, and my emphasis will be on the academic and professional programs. The main contribution will be on curriculum development for these programs.
