Professor Angst is the Viola D. Hank Associate Professor of IT, Analytics, and Operations. He has been teaching and conducting research at the University of Notre Dame since 2007. Prior to joining Notre Dame, Angst was honored to win the Krowe/Legg Mason Teaching Excellence award from the University of Maryland, which is the most prestigious teaching award at the school. In 2017, Angst was awarded the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, C.S.C., Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching. At Notre Dame, Angst has taught at the undergraduate, graduate, and executive education levels. He particularly enjoys incorporating case-based learning into his courses and has used this type of teaching method in his Project Management, Business Problem Solving, and Strategic IT courses. Each of these courses finds its base in ethical decision-making and builds from a foundation of ‘knowing one’s values,’ and extends to ‘using one’s values’ to make decisions. This is something that is reinforced throughout the semester and applied to everything the students do. The students’ skills are then tested in several cases that challenge them by asking them to take a multi-stakeholder perspective to decision-making, problem-solving, and implementing solutions. Angst is enthusiastic and passionate about his teaching and loves introducing innovations to the classroom.
