Leon Guendoo

Faculty Member
University, an MBA from Baruch College (CUNY), a BA in Economics from the University of the West Indies, and technology certifications of MCSE, MCP, CCNA, A+, and Network+ from Microsoft, Cisco, and CompTIA. His teaching career spans over 25 years, the majority of which has been with career colleges in New York City that serve very diverse student populations. While his specialization areas are in management and technology, his favorite courses are those involving leadership, economics, technology, and especially spreadsheets. He believes that just as technology skills are essential to all college graduates, so are spreadsheet skills to all business, finance, and management students. Leon is also a distance education expert, having taught online for over 10 years, developed online MBA curricula as a Subject Matter Expert, and trained faculty on the key principles of delivering online courses effectively to college students. He is a Certified Online Instructor (LERN; MIVU) and wrote his doctoral dissertation on the credibility of the online PhD in obtaining faculty positions at community colleges. At his home in Richmond Hill, New York, he enjoys his leisure time with his family of six (four college seniors), including furry companions Layla and Sleepy (the two dogs), and Tommy (the cat). Being an educator comes effortlessly for Leon because he enjoys sharing knowledge. For him each course offers the thrill of meeting a new family of learners with whom to share experiences, perspectives, ideas and knowledge.
