  • Author Bio

    Greg Chidi Obi’s PhD is from the Indiana Institute of Technology, Fort Wayne, IN for studies in Global Leadership with a concentration in Organizational Management. His earlier degrees are a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from Purdue University, while his undergraduate studies were in Nigeria, where he graduated with an HND in Mass Communications (IMT, Enugu), majoring in Broadcast Journalism. Obi also holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Advertising and Public Relations (ESUT, Enugu).

    Obi is an Assistant Professor, and also serves as the campus coordinator/adviser of the Business Management Technology program (BMT).

    His research interests are in the areas of organizational management/leadership. Particularly as it relates to how diverse cultures conceive management concepts like empowerment, job satisfaction, and motivation of employees. His focus is on how variables like gender, socioeconomic power, culture, etc., influence employees’ perception of these management tools, contrasting these findings between developing countries and developed countries like the United States. Other interests include the performance of corporate and political leadership in both worlds, reasons for failure and success, and if such reasons are culturally influenced, as well as finding what these seeming divergent “worlds” can learn from each other.

    Obi’s teaching philosophy is summarized in the words of Albert Einstein: “Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a precious gift and not as a hard duty.“
