Robert J. Bush

My work involves two related areas: forest products and packaging. Within each, I study marketing and related business functions. I believe that the great majority of students will be employed in positions which require them to understand and use business concepts and incorporate opportunities to gain this knowledge into my courses. I believe that we learn by doing as well as studying. Consequently, my courses incorporate experiential opportunities wherever possible. I enjoy working with both undergraduate and graduate students.
