Dean Dr. Hassan HassabElnaby – College of Business
Dr. HassabElnaby is an avid student of history and a writer when he’s not running the College of Business on the daily. Every day when he gets home, he feeds his cat and calls his three kids, who are all spread out among the Midwest and East Coast. When he wants to let off some steam, he enjoys listening to a program he grew up with as a child called A Thousand and One Nights. This program is essentially a collection of stories from cultures in the Middle East and Central Asia. “It takes me to different countries, different centuries, different adventures,” he said. Dr. HassabElnaby feels this program not only has hidden wisdom he can apply in his life, but it helps him realize the trivial nature of some everyday problems and how to overcome them. He also enjoys watching classic films, such as “Troy,” “Forrest Gump” and “Casablanca.” Dr. HassabElnaby also finds that bouncing ideas off of his colleagues in other colleges is a great way to find help and relieve stress.
