Introducing

Welcome to the website of Matthew A. Gilbert, MBA!

I am an American teacher, researcher, and trainer with more than 25 years of experience writing, speaking, and consulting. Guided by the motto “learn continuously, live generatively” I develop undergraduate and graduate courses in communication, entrepreneurship, innovation, management, and marketing for delivery on campus, online, and in blended learning environments.

After teaching extensively across Southern California, I embraced an expat opportunity in Dubai, United Arab Emirates where I educate undergraduates at the American University in the Emirates. Leveraging active learning strategies, I also facilitate corporate training on business writing, creativity and innovation, and emotional intelligence for entrepreneurs, Fortune 500 employee, and government officials.

Intersecting humanity, industry, and technology, my research has been published in peer-reviewed journal articles, trade publications, books, book chapters, and conference proceedings with additional articles appearing in magazines and newspapers.

When asked why teaching is my tenure I explain, “education empowers me to shape the lives of others while giving my life greater meaning.”
