Filipino professor to be honored as distinguished business dean

A FILIPINO professor based in the United States is set to receive an international award on November 26 and 27 in Indonesia.

Dr. Joseph Mark Munoz, a Filipino professor of management and international business, will receive the 2016 Academy for Global Business Advancement (AGBA) Distinguished Business Dean recognition award at the Universitas Sebelas Maret in Surakarta Central Java, Indonesia.

Munoz described his success as “the best of what you can be to attain the highest quality of work.”

He became the interim dean of Tabor School of Business at Millikin University in the US on November 2, 2015 while the school is still looking for a permanent dean.

Before America put him on the limelight, Munoz was born in Zamboanga City.

He earned his Ph.D. in Management and a Master of Business Administration from the University of San Jose-Recoletos in Cebu, Philippines and worked in a private company in Manila for quite some time.

Munoz built an entirely new career when he decided to go to the US and find new opportunities there.

In 2001, Munoz applied as a professor and has been in the academe of Millikin University for 15 years before he was promoted as dean of the school for eight months.

He stepped down from post on July 1, 2016, because he said he preferred to be a professor since it has a better work schedule, adding that he has been accustomed to write books.

Munoz authored several books, namely, Strategies for University Management (Volume 1), Strategies for University Management (Volume 2) and his recently finished, Managerial Forensics.

What excites Munoz more than receiving the award, he said, is “the ability to make an impact in the world through my books.”

Munoz dedicated most of his life in business as well as educating people when it comes to entrepreneurship.

The ability to offer new knowledge, to pioneer ideas and to contribute to change, are what inspired Munoz to write books.

He advised his fellow Filipino entrepreneurs to "think beyond the Philippines and look at the world."

"Thinking internationally, having a more global perspective and tapping into opportunities overseas, I think might be the advice I would give to Filipino entrepreneur and businessman," he said.

Aside from being a writer/professor/dean, he also runs his own consultant company, the Munoz and Associates International, based in Decatur, Illinois Area, USA.

Aside from being recognized in the two-day congress in Indonesia, Munoz will hold a training session to different professors focusing on performance or action-base learning. (Pia Noreen Bilar/Sunnex)
