I like the professors, their flexible approach to teaching, and having them share their experience. The course reading materials are also valuable resources of information and knowledge. I own a couple of small businesses based in Seattle — a long-term care for the elderly service, as well as a regional food brokerage company that specializes in supplying retailers and some wholesalers. I would love to teach some courses as an adjunct professor once I complete my studies. ” – Retired NBA Player (Seattle SuperSonics, New Jersey Nets, Miami Heat and the Portland Trail Blazers) and Managing Principal of Stepania & Associates, LLC, Vladimir Stepania
