Dr. Metodija Stojanovski

Course Instructor

Dr. Metodija Stojanovski (BS, MBA, Ph.D.) earned his BS in Electrical Engineering and worked as an engineer for a mining company before quickly being promoted to managerial positions which so fascinated him as he attempted to answer this question (in his own words) "What makes an excellent manager?" This then led him to pursue his MBA and soon afterwards his doctorate in management. For the last 15 years, he's been teaching undergraduate and graduate electronics, mathematics, management, and business courses in order to share his knowledge and passion for business, management, and accounting.
