Dr. Dale C. Herndon teaches courses in global business and finance. In his global business course, students participate in discussions involving pressing issues around international trade. The global business landscape is constantly evolving, and students will apply critical thinking to explore concepts involving economics and finance, marketing and management, among others, in the international arena. The course is supplemented through assignments, quizzes and a country profile report.

Students get introduced to capital markets, investments and corporate finance in his finance course. Classes consist of engaging discussions on current trends in finance supplemented with weekly chapter assignments and occasional quizzes. Major assessments include three to four problem-based exams and a case study solving real-world scenarios for four fictitious clients.

In all classes, Herndon conveys the information through storytelling, incorporating the significant concepts and essential details through practical, real-world experience.

Previously, he worked for PwC as a management consultant.
