My Teaching Philosophy
Dr. Pavlo Tsebro
I structure my classes with a substantial practical component: cases on real business problems for actual companies; assignments on current events/news; problems and questions that resemble real-life problems that financial (and often non-financial) decision-makers may encounter. In all courses I teach, I embed technological components as much and as relevant as possible. Most finance-based analytical tools can be easily implemented in Excel, which I incorporate in most of the finance courses.
I personally enjoy the smaller classes; it really provides a great opportunity to bond well with your professors. It can also benefit your overall learning. Based on my experience thus far, I have been able to rely on my professors to help guide and educate me."
