E132M 775-1483 galbraith@gcc.mass.edu

My interest is in all things management. My areas of research include management control systems, statistical quality control, business strategy, and managerial communication. I am a member of the Academy of Management and the Institute of Management Accountants. For me teaching is the name of the game. I love the dynamics of the classroom. I regularly teach management, financial accounting, management accounting, and managerial communications. My class motto is that “Your success is my business.” I believe that teaching and learning go hand in hand. Therefore, I seek to create a classroom that makes learning fun and where all are heard and respected. William Butler Yeats once remarked that “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” I try to keep this foremost in my mind whenever I am teaching. I also have an interest in the history of philosophy. So that I do not sit around all of the time, I find time for table tennis, golf, and my tread mill.
