Biography
Dr. Warren joined the MVSU business department as an Assistant Professor of Management in August 2012. Dr. Warren’s teaching philosophy can be summed up in one sentence: “It is the duty of a true teacher to teach students how to think intelligently about the subject material they are being taught”. His approach to instruction is a synergistic one that encompasses a combination of theory and real world practical application of business and management principles. Dr. Warren’s research interests include; organizational effectiveness, trust, leadership, organizational leadership, organizational theory and design, and globalization. Dr. Warren’s background includes having worked with the United States Department of Agriculture, Agricultural Research Service for almost 14 years in catfish genetics research and in various administrative/management capacities. He has also worked as an electronics technician for 7 years in astronomical instrumentation for the University of Arizona’s Steward Observatory where he also received his undergraduate degree in astronomy. His work with USDA has resulted in numerous awards and presentations at scientific meetings in addition to administrative/management details. Dr. Warren has also conducted motivational speaking sessions and brings this approach to his teaching and instruction in the class room. With publications in multiple disciplines (biological sciences and business/management) and with other publications and presentations that are in preparation, Dr. Warren believes that his synergistic background of hard and soft science and administrative experiences gives him a unique perspective on preparing traditional and non-traditional students to be individually competitive for the ever changing and dynamic work environment. “My goal is to help students to attain and actualize a personal and individually sustainable competitive advantage using the principles of management and leadership”.
