Tom's TeachingTom has taught a class on creativity and business for the IIT Stuart School of Business. Here are some comments from the students:

“Overall, it was truly an amazing experience. I have a lots of stories to tell my business associates what a creativity class in MBA school offers. I take this opportunity to congratulate you, Prof. Tresser, for being first to bring this to Stuart School of Business and looking forward to seeing it offered as ‘core’ course with some enhancements. Best of Luck!

“Overall, great class. Wonderful change of pace from other classes. As we learned, it’s an important subject, too. I enjoyed the fact that the class furthered my personal development in addition to my professional development. Thanks!
