    Teaching Style

    When teaching in the classroom, Dr. Megits likes students to think about the class as a community. Every student has something to contribute from her/his life experiences and by analyzing the events that shape our world. His lectures are not limited to didactic instruction, but engage students through collaborative work in small groups.

Professor Megits has had the opportunity to work with a diverse student body, thus he strives to provide a conducive, trusting environment in which students of different cultural and ethnic origins can have the confidence to share their ideas without fear of judgment or rejection. Furthermore, he enjoys mentoring diverse students and providing encouragement and advice as they continue their careers despite of students believe and country of origins. He continued his academic career after over a decade in business, have worked around the world, and participated in conferences in Europe, Latin America, and South Africa.

    “I lived and worked in a country that no longer exists, then immigrated to a land with a completely different language, culture, and economic system. I was inspired by opportunities for entrepreneurship, and applied myself to take advantage of beneficial circumstances. Thus I always tell my students, regardless of the obstacles, with passion, hard work, and critical thinking they can always achieve their dreams.”
