  Alireza Tajbakhsh    Position:  Assistant Professor - IME Project Management   What do you like about teaching the IME students?  I believe that our IME students have a grand passion to help the community grow while getting the least academic credit for what they are expected to do. Genuinely, they are role models at Dhillon School of Business living their social responsibility dreams and at the same time pursuing the school's vision, "Best Management Experience"   Something interesting about you?  Training for my first marathon before I turn 40 (I planned this personal "project" during the summer using project management techniques that I discuss in my IME classes)   How do you think Project Management will benefit the IME students?  I designed my IME section in such a way that the IME students (1) use the course materials in planning their fund raising projects using the best practices applied to service/product projects by managers and practitioners; (2) apply the discussed PM techniques in their workplace and professional experiences to efficiently manage different aspects of projects they will be involved in; and (3) pursue professional certificates in future independently through self-study at their own convenience and personal pace.

  Jason Copping    Position:  Instructor - IME Human Resource Management   What do you like about teaching the IME students?  I like the fact that they are exposed to learning through simulations and interactive conversations.   Something interesting about you?  I love conflict resolution   How do you think H/R Management will benefit the IME students?  I believe the course teaches the students how to become strong managers as well as understand great HR practices. To manage is to lead through others.
