In June, Cuneyt Gozu, PhD, associate clinical professor of management, was appointed Dean’s Faculty Fellow for the 2022-23 academic year.
By gathering primary and secondary data both internally within LeBow and from external partners, including co-op employers, Gozu hopes that working with faculty and staff will better prepare students for their professional careers.
“I’m hoping we can better understand what we are offering and how can we integrate these internal powerhouses more,” he says.
Gozu, who teaches career management courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels, notes the importance of giving students the opportunity to analyze their overall career progress.
“I always remind them that the landscape of business is constantly evolving, and career management is an ongoing process,” he says. “You always need feedback and develop an overall development plan to understand yourself, detect changes in the environment, and create career opportunities.”
Gozu will also look to build on work done by previous Dean’s Fellows, Rajiv Nag, PhD, clinical professor of management, and Stacy Kline, assistant dean for teaching and learning and clinical professor of accounting, particularly relating to “core power skills,” such as teamwork, leadership, career readiness and presentation skills.
“Through this fellowship I hope to share what we’ve done in the past, and observe what’s happening now, in order to see better into the future,” he says.
