I believe that accounting is an extraordinarily effective means of communication among people conducting business with each other. It is in this human context that I aspire to teach accounting.
Every year, Ross MBAs select a handful of their teachers to talk to all of them on their last day of class. This is a great honor for any teacher, and, therefore, in 2014, I seized this opportunity to talk about my view of business, education, and leadership. In particular, I note how humanities and philosophy can enhance a student's numerical skills and make that student a superior leader. I thank my students and friends for helping me think through the thoughts here.
A transcript of the talk is here.
