Steinmetz Professor of Operations Management

Henrique Correa, Ph.D.

“At Crummer we don’t merely teach ‘management.’ Rather, we – faculty and staff – work together to create a near perfect environment for our students to develop into effective managers and entrepreneurs. The high caliber and vast experience of our faculty together with the small class sizes allow for a personal and interactive learning environment for our students who are constantly encouraged and challenged to realize their full potential as business leaders. As a professor, it is very rewarding to be part of such rich learning environment.”
