Brief biography

Nese Nasif joined the College of Business Administration in Fall of 2016. She has taught a range of undergraduate and graduate business courses here and at two prior universities. Dr. Nasif’s teaching philosophy includes the belief that a successful professor is one who not only provides a bridge for information to cross into the classroom but also encourages students to take an active role in their own learning experiences. She challenges students to focus on critical analysis, ethical decision making, and effective communication as underlying objectives for all of her courses. Dr. Nasif’s research areas are in the broad areas of consumer behavior, globalization, and neuroscience. Prior to her career in higher education, she worked as an analyst in the antitrust and competition policy practice group of an economics consulting firm as well as a high school mathematics and economics teacher. She holds a BA from University of Chicago (Economics), a MA from University of Michigan (Education), and a PhD from University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley (Marketing). Her life outside of UW-L includes spending time with her husband and two young daughters, discussing politics and society, and thinking about starting an exercise regimen.
