Paul Brazina believes that every student should have a business education that is enriched with courses in the arts and sciences. Those courses build a foundation of ethical behavior, creative thinking, knowing the importance of serving the community, and applying quantitative analysis to making decisions. Business is a way to fulfill one’s dreams while improving the lives of one’s family, friends, and community.
Paul Brazina has been on the Accounting faculty since 1974. During that period, he did professional training, corporate consulting, and expert testimony.
