  • Robyn’s MIS class and learning about excel
    • Pivot tables have been huge

Dr. Nathan Mauck, Finance Department

This is my 5th year teaching at Bloch School. I really like being at Bloch. Our students are great to work with, faculty and staff are supportive and our connection with the community is strong.

What do you enjoy most about teaching?

My favorite thing about teaching is interacting with students. Getting to know students and doing what I can to help them reach their goals is the best part of the job.

What advice do you have for students who want to build a good relationship with a faculty member?

Faculty members typically do what they do because they like to help. Reaching out to faculty can be a bit scary, but if you do I think you’ll find that they are excited to get the chance to know you better and they might prove to be a valuable resource.
