The HTM program will be educational, it will be inspirational, and it will be transformational. I wanted to become involved with this program because I think it’s all about excellence and it’s about excellence at the level of the director, excellence of the level of the faculty and excellence at the level of the students. New trends in the HTM industry have everything to do with communication, technology, the customer experience, managing in complex systems and we will be able to work within all of those realms at what we feel is a cutting edge level. The hybrid online blended program that we have to offer is really the best of both worlds. It gives students an opportunity to meet each other and to meet the faculty while at the same time, having all the advantages of online learning which includes convenience and flexibility. Well I think a world-wide program is going to offer the background, the experiences, the diversity, the different cultures of people from around the globe and that will result in a much richer learning experience. I want my students to get the HTM Edge.
