I’ve pursued two unique and successful careers during my professional work life. In my first career, after graduating from the University of Pittsburgh with an engineering degree, I joined Schlumberger Limited and worked in oil and gold exploration for nearly 11-years. My initial positions included field-engineering roles on offshore oil rigs. After four years as an engineer, Schlumberger sponsored my MBA at the University of Pittsburgh. The MBA degree propelled me into international management positions with the company where I served as country manager in South Africa and Bolivia, corporate consultancy roles in France, and business development in The Netherlands and Germany. I held a life-long desire to pursue an academic career in teaching and research. Thus, after 11-years in growing corporate roles, I started my Ph.D. in Finance at Texas A&M University in 1992 and earned my doctorate in late 1996.
I maintain a strong interest and commitment to students through my teaching and administrative efforts. From a teaching perspective, I’ve had substantial experience working with undergraduate and graduate students. My portfolio of courses spans introductory finance courses as well as more advanced courses including Corporate Governance, International Finance, Corporate Valuation and Financial Strategy. My teaching ratings consistently place me in the top 10% of all instructors in my school. On a five-point scale, my scores routinely fall in the 4.7 range (or better) for the question “Overall, instructor is”. Finally, I have received numerous Outstanding Teacher Awards at American University and Temple University. Since entering academia, I have strived to establish an outstanding and continuing record of research and teaching. My research agenda focuses broadly on corporate finance with a particular emphasis on corporate governance. Over the past several years, my work has appeared in the Journal of Finance, Journal of Financial Economics, Journal of Accounting and Economics, and Administrative Science Quarterly.

Dr. Andersson received her Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior/Social Issues in Management from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Her research, published in outlets such as Academy of Management Journal, Academy of Management Review, Human Relations, and Organization, focuses on the dark side of business organizations.

Dr. Andersson teaches courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels in the area of Business, Society and Ethics and Corporate Sustainability, and has been lauded for her curricular innovation and ability to inspire critical thinking in her students. She was the recipient of the 2006 Andrisani-Frank Undergraduate Teaching Award and the 2005 Musser Excellence in Leadership Award for Teaching.
Active on campus, in her profession, and in the community, Dr. Andersson’s service engagements revolve around trying to stir things up, attempting to “ecologize” and “humanize” the business world and business education.

Ravi S. Kudesia (PhD in Management, Washington University in St. Louis) is an Assistant
Professor of Human Resource Management at the Fox School of Business, Temple University.
Before joining the Fox School, he was a research fellow at Future Resilient Systems: a think tank
established collaboratively by ETH Zürich and the National Research Foundation of Singapore.
Dr. Kudesia researches how people can organize more mindfully. In doing so, he explores three
interdependent processes: attention (what information people notice in situations), interpretation
(how people give meaning to that information), and energy (how engaged people are in
responding to situations). Going beyond the individual level, his research further concerns how
attention, interpretation, and energy transfer across individuals as they organize into
collectives—and how these collectives solve problems and make sense of their environments.
Taking a multimethod and interdisciplinary approach, Dr. Kudesia has conducted research using
experiments, qualitative methods, and agent based models—and has collaborated with
neuroscientists, theoretical physicists, and a Buddhist monk. In addition to the more conventional
organizational contexts, his research also captures organizing processes in contexts as diverse as
protest crowds, explosive demolition projects, and NCAA Division 1 sports teams. His research
has appeared in leading outlets such as Academy of Management Review and Journal of Business
Dr. Kudesia welcomes collaborations with doctoral students on projects related to mindfulness,
sensemaking, and problem solving in complex systems—including students who wish to pursue
qualitative research methods. For examples of his projects, please visit the research link above.

After earning his doctoral degree from the University of Oregon in 1988, Eric began his career at SUNY-Buffalo. The durability of western New York winters soon exceeded his patience (having been raised in Miami), so, after a visit at the Fuqua School of Duke University, he moved to Philadelphia (where his wife has relatives) to join the Fox School of Business at Temple University in 1992.
Dr. Press has been an active researcher, publishing in journals such as Journal of Accounting and Economics, Journal of Accounting and Public Policy, The Accounting Review, Contemporary Accounting Research, Review of Accounting Studies, and the Journal of Business Finance and Accounting. He taught a variety of accounting courses at the undergraduate, Masters, and Ph.D. levels.
As chairman of the Department of Accounting at Temple since 2006, Eric has crossed a number of items off his to-do list. He revised the undergraduate curriculum to make learning more effective for students; recruited several nationally prominent Accounting scholars; signed up founding members of the Temple Accounting Circle to support faculty research, Ph.D. students, and professional development activities; initiated a Masters of Accountancy program that begins in 2011; and, in 2014, oversaw fund raising and an Alumni Reunion Dinner that together raised more than $700,000 for scholarships, and aims to attain AACSB Department of Accounting accreditation in 2018. These accomplishments evidence Eric’s dedication to accounting education and research.
