John Hansen, Ph.D. Business

Hansen, a professor of marketing, is "widely considered one of the top teacher/scholars of professional sales in the country," according to colleagues. Hansen is known for his ability to merge theory with practice by "disseminating theoretical concepts while emphasizing relevant managerial applications." 

He brings accurate and up-to-date information to the classroom, which "inspires a student's lifelong interest in learning that extends outside of the classroom." Hansen creates a comfortable classroom environment in which students are encouraged to contribute to classroom discussions. He uses feedback to make adjustments to his classes as needed. "Perhaps Dr. Hansen's most important attribute is that he recognizes teaching excellence requires hard work, devotion and constant change," a co-worker wrote.
