VLADIMIR ZLATEV: My name is Valdi Zlatev. I’m an Associate Professor of the Practice of Boston University Metropolitan College, with a PhD and professional background in Industrial Engineering and Corporate Management.

My latest publications are on industry tools for teaching Applied Business Analytics in virtual laboratories and Business Analysis for IT practitioners.

I’m a true believer that all my students are overachievers, so I am designing my classes for overachievers.

Eagerness to learn is the distinguishing characteristic of the successful manager of the 21st century enterprise.

You have to be a marathon runner and the distance is not 40 kilometers but 40 years.

That’s the message I try to convey to my students. You will have to work very hard to predict what will happen to you, your company, your environment, your competitor, and the marketplace.
