From Theory to Practice

Educating the next generation of global leaders is critical to our collective future. Lash's courses focus on evaluating the complex interdisciplinary domains of global economic strategy, conventional political-military issues (such as defense strategy, security cooperation, and strategic futures), as well as non-traditional warfare (economic espionage and advanced technologies) that define the future of U.S. foreign and security policy.

As a practicing national security and international business strategy professional, Lash believes there is expansive value in professional development that is connected to practice. He has an ability to connect with students to translate theory into practical implications for business strategy, national security, and global grand strategy.


Lash's perspective on teaching and learning is that critical thinking involves assimilating and digesting information, creating mosaic interpretations of data and information from a variety of diverse perspectives, and then synthesizing that information and using it for analysis in the face of new and different contexts.
