Dr Tam did not have the luxury of pursuing a PhD degree right after his MBA and BSBA from Central Missouri. Instead, he worked in the industry for considerable years, leading various business functions before entering the academic world again where he has also lectured for more than a decade. He brings his rich international experience in IT consulting, business training and development, and higher education with all world top organizations to the classroom at Fort Hays. Prior to joining FHSU, Dr Tam served on the faculty in the College of Business at City University of Hong Kong. He received his PhD in Management from the Surrey Business School. As some additional information, City University of Hong Kong is currently ranked top 100 universities worldwide. University of Surrey is ranked 8th overall while the Surrey Business School is ranked top 15 for the management programs in the UK.

Dr Tam is passionate in teaching and active in research. He is a member of several research associations. He publishes articles in peer-reviewed journals and presents papers in international conferences on a regular basis. In his training/teaching adventure, Dr Tam feels fortunate to be given compliments as “a Magician on the Stage” in workshops as well as “a Teacher with Human Touch” in classes. He was once nominated by more than 80 students simultaneously for the “Teaching Excellence Award” – one of the largest supporting groups ever noted in the event.
