Dr. Albert Widman

Part-time Faculty of Business - Glenn R. Jones College of Business

After a twenty year career at the highest levels of nonprofit management, I obtained my doctorate in management and finance and entered academia. I taught, on-site, for Berkeley College in NYC and was appointed as Chair of the Department of Management. Upon relocating to the West Coast, I continued to teach for Berkeley in the distance learning program and was appointed as Chair of Online Education. I left that position in 2012, to teach online for the Swiss University, SMC University. At SMC, in addition to teaching, I am a member of the Academic Review Board with a specialty of qualitative research methods. I further explore my love of teaching by teaching part time in the programs at Seton Hall University and Trident University International.
