Dr. Kurt Diesch
Part-time Faculty - Glenn R. Jones College of Business
Dr. Kurt Diesch received his formal education at Iowa State University and received his Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering with a Computer Science Emphasis in 1989. His real love is software development and he has been working in that area since the early 80’s. Dr. Diesch has written some software you have probably seen on store shelves and many custom programs and web sites too. His latest work is in the area of ASP.NET web development and data analysis using MS SQL and MS Analysis Services. Dr. Diesch lives in Illinois now but used to live in Iowa and grew up there too. He spent about 15 years in other parts of the country working with software companies and his own software development and consulting business.
In recent history Dr. Diesch was the Dean of the College of Business and Technology at another online university, and he has taught many online courses for various colleges over the past 10 years so he has been involved in online education for a while. Dr. Diesch also spent 5 years as a professor at Iowa State University so he has experienced the brick and mortar view as well. His exposure to online education has made him a firm believer in this medium.
