“My philosophy on teaching is that success in the classroom involves motivating students to achieve a thorough understanding of financial topics. This can best be accomplished with a balance of theory and practical application that allows students the opportunity to develop skills needed to reach their individual goals. Emphasis on technological innovations is an important component in the preparation of students for productive corporate careers.”Dr. Benjamin L. Dow, III, Ph.D.
