About Karl....

I am an UMSL graduate, having received my MBA here.  My bachelor’s degree is in business from the University of Iowa.  I have worked in various advising functions for over 25 years.  I started with UMSL undergraduate business students, then moved to the graduate business office.  I am excited to be working with undergraduate students once again.

International Business

National markets are becoming increasingly integrated. The study of international business focuses on understanding the forces behind this globalization of markets and production. 


The study of management and organizational behavior focuses on the behavior of individuals and groups in an organizational setting. The business environment today demands graduates with skills who can effectively make decisions involving working with and leading people.

The management and organizational behavior emphasis stresses the qualitative approaches to business. The major areas of focus are: the theory and functions of management; the management of human resources; the development of strategic policies in an organization; organizational design and conflict resolution; entrepreneurship; and international management. In covering these topics, both classic and current perspectives are provided.
