Yusuf Nur, IU Kokomo assistant professor of international business, travels home to Somalia during his summer and winter breaks to teach business management principles to its leaders. Recently, Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud invited him to lead a session on resource sharing at a five-day conference about issues that country faces as it rebuilds from years of civil war.

Nur shares his insights and research on international business, especially about Somalia, with his fellow faculty and with students.  "The students benefit enormously from his experience, especially when he talks about international business," said Erv Boschmann, interim dean of the School of Business at IU Kokomo.
