Thinking About Being a Professor? (Not Required)

Some students are interested in becoming professors. Here’s a little video about what you should be thinking about while you’re still an undergraduate.

BTW: I think this is especially useful for students thinking about going into fields other than economics or business.

FWIW: This video really doesn’t apply to the MBA and MAcc (which are the graduate programs we have in SUU’s School of Business). But there is one salient point in the video for SUU students considering those programs: don’t go to graduate school to avoid getting on with your life.

FYI: If you’re interested in perhaps getting a Ph.D. in economics or finance, feel free to come talk to me. Before coming to SUU I taught for 8 years in a program that granted Ph.D.’s, taught about 25 Ph.D. classes, sat on about a dozen dissertation committees (including being the primary advisor on two of them), and eventually ended up directing the whole program. I’m not tooting my own horn here (who needs the extra work, right): if you need info there are zero people with more experience about this at SUU. Zero.
