S.R. (Sean) White, Dr

Assistant Professor of Entrepreneurship


I make sure that people are able to get their jobs done. This is done through training, experiential learning, and counceling in order to: devise clear goals, design and monitoring processes, map out the necessary and available resources, foster openness to new interpretations of the situation at hand, (re)align expectations, strategically encourag team-members' inspiration, and mediate between diverse stakeholders. Having resided in Europe and South America, I thrive in cross-cultural exchanges.
