Meet Your Faculty – Mr. Jim Schnaedter

Department:      Management

What was your favorite subject in school & why? 

Economics – The relationship between conceptual exploration and practical application.  Plus, I had a great economics professor in college and would have taken more econ courses, but I was too close to graduation before taking my first course in the area.

 

What was your least favorite subject in school & why? 

Math – The required repetition of problems once I understood the concept drove me nuts.

 

What were you doing before you came to Whitewater?

Associate Dean of Business and T & I at Mid-State Technical College.

 

What made you want to teach?

There is something about seeing students applying and understanding a complex concept that is very rewarding.  There is a “high” that I can get from a great class session that I could never get in my other occupations.

 

What professional experience do you bring into the classroom?

30 years of diverse management and professional experience in operations, human resources, and quality improvement.

 

What do you like to do outside of the College of Business & Economics?

I like to cook and eat, therefore, exercise; especially, hiking, a favored activity.

 

What is something that students would be surprised to learn about you?

I have a titanium left knee and have had a quadruple bypass.  I only needed three bypasses, but the hospital was having a buy three get one free deal.

 

What is something about teaching that was unexpected when you first began?

How different students are at the various institutions where I have taught.
