During my Fulbright term, I helped to create the MBA program at the University of Swaziland. I found donors for classroom renovations and a computer lab in order to facilitate future international accreditation of the program. I also served on the Senate, the MBA Committee, and several other boards and committees in order to pursue MBA program objectives. I was also successful in adding a soft-skills course to the undergraduate curriculum and helped to reconnect the Faculty of Commerce with many industry partners and regional companies for student internships, permanent placement positions, sponsorship of programs, speaking engagements, and other symbiotic facets of public-private partnerships. 

Currently, I have several ongoing research projects. At the forefront is student behavior during the COVID-19 pandemic. I also research cultural dimensions and their effect on various aspects of consumer behavior.   I have several ongoing research projects.
