A self-described "explorer of knowledge," this Tabor School of Business professor takes Performance Learning into uncharted waters



Millikin University faculty are well-known for their innovative work with students. Across all areas of study, through the University's hallmark Performance Learning model, Millikin's faculty give students unprecedented access to hands-on, real-world experiences that fuel growth, providing them with a level of confidence and cool expertise that most students don't develop until graduate school.

米利金大学的教师以其与学生的创新工作而闻名。 在所有学习领域,通过大学标志性的绩效学习模式,米利金的教职员工为学生提供了前所未有的实践、真实世界的体验,这些体验促进了成长,为他们提供了大多数学生无法培养的自信和出色的专业知识 直到读研究生。

The groundbreaking Performance Learning work being done by Dr. J. Mark Munoz is no different. As a prolific author, global award-winner and dedicated professor, Munoz has consistently found ways to turn his personal and professional passions into a curriculum that takes Tabor School of Business students into uncharted waters.

J. Mark Munoz 博士所做的开创性绩效学习工作也不例外。 作为一位多产的作家、全球获奖者和敬业的教授,Munoz 一直在寻找方法将他的个人和专业热情转化为课程,将泰博商学院的学生带入未知领域。

"I have learned over time that our students are so talented and always come up with amazing ideas," Munoz said. "Some of these ideas come up at the tail-end of the project, when key research has been done and we desperately need fresh strategies and solutions. I have developed so much respect and admiration for the abilities of our students — when it's time to deliver, they always do."

“随着时间的推移,我了解到我们的学生非常有才华,总是能想出绝妙的点子,”穆尼奥斯说。 “其中一些想法是在项目的尾声出现的,那时关键研究已经完成,我们迫切需要新的策略和解决方案。我对我们学生的能力产生了极大的尊重和钦佩——是时候了 交付,他们总是这样做。”

Case in point: Munoz's International Business Consulting students have worked with governments around the world to develop economic and branding strategies that impact the populations of entire countries. On two occasions Munoz has led teams of Millikin students as consultants for Ecuador. In 2017, Millikin students developed a market strategy for the country as it sought to enter the U.S. handicrafts market.

例证:Munoz 国际商务咨询专业的学生与世界各国政府合作,制定影响整个国家人民的经济和品牌战略。 穆尼奥斯曾两次带领米利金学生团队担任厄瓜多尔的顾问。 2017 年,米利金学生制定了该国的市场战略,因为它试图进入美国手工艺品市场。

Haley Hogenkamp, Class of 2017, was one of the 11 students involved with the project. "It was an incredibly formative experience for me as an undergraduate," she said. "At the beginning of our project, we had no idea just how immense the undertaking of the project would be. Additionally, it was high stakes."

2017 届的 Haley Hogenkamp 是参与该项目的 11 名学生之一。 “作为一名本科生,这对我来说是一次令人难以置信的形成性经历,”她说。 “在我们的项目开始时,我们不知道该项目的规模有多大。此外,这是高风险的。”

Government officials from Ecuador reached out again in 2019, asking Munoz and his students to take on a branding project to boost tourism in the Ecuadorian province of Imbabura, which led to work on a global branding strategy for the entire country. These global opportunities have continued, even during the pandemic:

厄瓜多尔政府官员在 2019 年再次伸出援手,要求 Munoz 和他的学生开展一个品牌项目,以促进厄瓜多尔因巴布拉省的旅游业,从而为整个国家制定了全球品牌战略。 即使在大流行期间,这些全球机会仍在继续:

"As a class, we developed a global branding strategy for Liberia under a fully online format. It was the first time this course was taught online. Thankfully … our students can adapt and reinvent themselves and find new ways to learn and complete projects."

作为一个班级,我们以完全在线的形式为利比里亚制定了全球品牌战略。 这是该课程首次在线授课。 值得庆幸的是……我们的学生可以适应和重塑自己,并找到新的方法来学习和完成项目。”


From one project to the next, Munoz has seen this global work fuel the growth and development of his students in several ways.

从一个项目到下一个项目,Munoz 已经看到这项全球工作以多种方式推动了他的学生的成长和发展。

"One, students gain a stronger international perspective — they learn to appreciate foreign countries and cultures and the intricacies of doing business overseas. Second, they develop heightened research and analytical skills, discovering how to do comprehensive market research in foreign environments … And third, they experience global citizenship. They realize that they are part of a global community and can leverage their talents and abilities to make a real difference in the world."

“第一,学生获得更强大的国际视野——他们学会欣赏外国和文化以及在海外开展业务的复杂性。第二,他们提高研究和分析技能,发现如何在国外环境中进行全面的市场调查……第三, 他们体验了全球公民身份。他们意识到自己是全球社区的一部分,可以利用自己的才能和能力真正改变世界。”

Munoz has been modeling that global approach his entire career — a career that includes publishing more than 25 books across a diverse array of disciplines, from AI to entrepreneurship to a recent topic that takes a decidedly personal look at his life's work.

Munoz 在他的整个职业生涯中一直在为这种全球方法建模——他的职业生涯包括出版超过 25 本书,涉及不同的学科,从 AI 到创业,再到最近的一个主题,这个主题对他一生的工作进行了明确的个人审视。

"One of my recent books, 'Creating a Business and Personal Legacy,' was written from the heart. I hope the book helps others think about how they want to be remembered and what contributions they can make to the world. … We all have the potential to make a difference in a profound way. A key part of Millikin University's mission is to prepare students to live a life of meaning and value. I have made it a point to weave in key lessons from the book in all my classes."

“我最近的一本书《创造企业和个人遗产》是发自内心的。我希望这本书能帮助其他人思考他们希望如何被记住以及他们可以为世界做出什么贡献。……我们都有 以深刻的方式产生影响的潜力。米利金大学使命的一个关键部分是让学生过上有意义和有价值的生活。我已经把这本书的关键课程融入我所有的课程中。 “

Part of Munoz's legacy is the professional recognition he has received throughout his career — and his recognition of how fundamental his time at Millikin has been as a part of that legacy.

Munoz 的部分遗产是他在整个职业生涯中获得的专业认可,以及他对自己在 Millikin 的时间作为该遗产的一部分的重要性的认识。

"I learned a lot from our community, honed my skills here and received a lot of support. The mentoring I received from Millikin professors early in my career helped me develop my teaching skills. My students have always been my 'compass' and served as a source of inspiration in my work as a teacher, author and researcher."

“我从我们的社区学到了很多东西,在这里磨练了我的技能并得到了很多支持。我在职业生涯早期从米利金教授那里得到的指导帮助我发展了我的教学技能。我的学生一直是我的‘指南针’,并担任 作为一名教师、作家和研究人员,这是我工作的灵感来源。”

No doubt his students would say the same.
