Rob Routhieaux teaches courses in leadership development, organizational behavior, managerial communication, human resource management, entrepreneurship, and nonprofit management for graduate and undergraduate students. Professor Routhieaux has also served as a lead instructor and module coordinator for module one of the Hamline MBA program. His research focuses on succession planning, leadership development, nonprofit collaborations, and curriculum innovation. Dr. Routhieaux works with a number of nonprofit organizations as a board member, advisor, and executive director coach. He is also the faculty sponsor for the Hamline baseball team.

Dr. Routhieaux earned his M.A. and Ph.D. in Management (with special emphases on organizational behavior, human resource management, and communication) from the University of Arizona. His research on organizational change and development in health care has been cited and utilized in research and planning efforts in many countries around the world.

Teaching Style

Dr. Routhieaux's teaching style is discussion-oriented and application focused. He recognizes that the collective insight and experience in any given classroom trumps his individual knowledge. His goal is to create an environment where the breadth and depth of student knowledge and experience is cultivated to enhance the learning of others. He also makes an effort to make learning enjoyable and engaging.

“I want students to come to class ready to have fun and get messy. We might have an agenda item we never get to because questions and immediate learning needs trump the plan for the day. I want my students to be reflective, leave their egos at the door, and delight in the joy of learning with and from others.”
