As a Campus Director for Trine University he managed day-to-day affairs of the Regional Campus in Indianapolis. He received an MBA with distinction from Valparaiso University in 2008, a University that has been ranked as one of the best business schools in the US by US News and World Report. His Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration was granted by Tri-State University (now Trine) in 1977 with a major in Accounting.

Martin believes his classroom strength is relating academic concepts and principles to his past and current work experiences. In his view students learn best when they are involved in the classroom discussions and can see how curriculum applies to them today and their future plans. Professor Martin uses humor and current events to keep students engaged and his teaching relevant.

Director of Global Partnerships,
Associate Professor - Trine University
Ph.D. in Public Administration and Philosophy – University of Missouri Kansas City
M.B.A major in Management – Avila University
B.A. major in Business Administration – Webster University

Prior to my career in academics, I spent 26 years working in business. My business career encompassed information technology and management, primarily in the finance industry. I often use my business experiences in the classroom to help students see the connections between theory and application.

In my academic career of the last 20 years, I have had the opportunity to teach full-time and live in the USA as well as in many other countries, including Malaysia, China, Viet Nam, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Costa Rica, Burkina Faso, Turkey, France, and Austria. I like to use my international experiences in the classroom to help students explore global issues.

My research interests include management and ethics. My published articles on these subjects have appeared in domestic and international journals. I have made presentations related to these areas in the USA and internationally.

My wife Rebecca and I have been married for 46 years and we have two children and seven grandchildren. In my leisure time, I enjoy family, travelling, music, movies, cooking, carpentry, and scuba diving.
