Bringing a passion for the timeshare industry to higher education…

Having just concluded another semester of teaching at UCF, I reflect back on an exciting career change of moving from industry to academia.  Fall, 2012 was a semester of “planting” or arranging the building blocks from which academics and industry can come together to groom the future leaders of the timeshare industry.  So many exciting things came about during the Fall 2012 semester alone:  200 students completing timeshare specific courses, including 20 at the masters level; a video to promote timeshare education and career opportunities (http://vimeo.com/54669537); 32 students attending and participating in the Shared Ownership Investment Conference; a UCF Timeshare Advisory Board was re-assembled; summer interns working in the industry were extended career opportunities; job shadowing events exposed more students to the exciting world of timeshare; and we are only getting started!
