Dr. James Bezjian is an out of the box thinker, strategist, and professor. Students that take his class not only learn about strategy and entrepreneurship, but are inspired to understand and find their personal and professional identity.
The formation of identity is intrinsically linked to the culture a person relates to or creates. That culture is manifested through innovative practices and processes that create art, music, literature and science. And it is these cultural areas that survive when a civilization becomes part of the annals of history. Dr Bezjian defends this culture by applying innovative strategies to complex problems to ensure the protection of cultural and historical icons of various civilizations.
As a lover of culture, Dr. Bezjian believes in a philosophy of life long learning and travel. He views humanity and life’s journey as a constant puzzle being constructed with each piece of knowledge revealing a new side to humanity. Thus, he encourages his students to travel and study abroad to learn more about themselves through the experiences and lives of others.
Dr. Bezjian believes his why behind the what and how of his purpose is: “To help celebrate and defend the identity of people so that they have pride from where they come from and confidence of who they are going to be.”
