Currently, I am a professor of Economics and Finance, Department of Economics and Business Administration, Lincoln University of Pennsylvania. I came to Lincoln University in 1989 from Morgan State University, Baltimore Maryland where three out of the four years I spent there served as the Chairman of the Department of Accounting and Finance.
From 1992 to 1998, then 2000 to 2003, I served as the Chairman of the Department of Economics and Business Administration of Lincoln University. From 1995 to 1997, I served as the Chairman of the Division of Social Science and Behavioral Studies at Lincoln University. During the same period, I was an Adjunct Professor/Consultant to the Wharton's Emerging Nations Executive Management Training Program. During the 1984 to 1985 academic year, I taught at the University of Southwestern Louisiana as an Assistant Professor of Economics and Finance.
In 1987, I was a Fulbright/Hays Scholar to Togo, Benin, and Sierra Leone. In 1996, the American Seminar Leaders Association certified me as a Seminar Leader. In 1997, I was cited as one of America's Leading Business Educators by SIFE.

I was instrumental in the development of the Executive Management Program of the Center for Public Policy and Diplomacy in 1990. As the Associate Director for the training program, I supervised and managed the training of executives from Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe. Through my academic career, I have done a lot of work in the areas of privatization and Economic Management. Since 1999, however, the devastating impact of AIDS/HIV has added Economic Impact of AIDS/HIV to my research interest. I have attended several conferences and workshops on this subject during the past three years.
