As a faculty member on multiple platforms—Undergraduate, Evening MBA and Online MBA—Mikel Chertudi is passionate about challenging students to exceed their own expectations. He draws from experience in startup business development, international business, cross-cultural communication and strategic marketing to coach students to success. As a business person, he carries the hard-won lessons of growing a company through the Great Recession, launching a venture out of the McGuire Entrepreneurship Program, creating and funding business plans and managing projects through their life cycles, both in academic and business settings. These experiences have required a positive attitude and steadfast commitment to building lasting relationships with teammates, partners and key stakeholders.
