Rosen-Jones Photography

I am an associate professor co-chairing the Business Program at Oberlin College & Conservatory. My research focuses on human capital, careers, and talent management.  I’ve taught courses in general management and leadership, human resource management, and financial accounting.

While at West Point, I developed the Hacking for Defense course. Here, cadets learn agile innovation through an immersive experience. They solved real-world Department of Defense problems in cross-disciplinary teams.

Prior to academia, I worked at McKinsey and Company for nine years as a management consultant.  I earned my doctorate from Harvard Business School.  I hold an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University and a Masters and Bachelors in Accountancy from the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University.
