Dr. Charlotte Davis
Wayland Prepared the Way
Charlotte Davis is an Assistant Professor of Management at Concord University in Athens, WV. Dr. Davis earned her degrees from Wayland, Texas Tech University and the University of Memphis. Her research interests are in the area of expatriate management; employee motivation, culture and HR strategy; immigrant professionals; and grief in the workplace.
One of the things she credits with her success today is courses she took while attending Wayland.
“The two courses in Human Resources and Compensation and Benefits prepared me to teach classes in HR; the class on International Management prepared me to study abroad and to teach classes in International Management; the class in Business Ethics gave me a lot of knowledge about sexual harassment and prepared me to teach my classes in Business Ethics here as well. The other classes were not unimportant, but these are the ones that I specifically gained a lot of the information that I use in my classes today.”
Dr. Davis teaches courses in International Business, Human Resource Management, Business Ethics, and Principles of Management. She has taught at the University of Memphis, Christian Brothers University (Memphis), Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU), and Concord University. While in Vienna, she taught courses in Global Mindset and Intercultural Competence, and in International Management. She is working toward an international exchange program between Concord University and Universidad Politécnica de Puebla in Mexico, and was chosen in 2015 as a Fellow of the Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) program in the State of West Virginia. She was also selected to be a Fellow of the Japanese Studies Institute (JSI) in 2016.
“I plan to focus on international teaching, especially for short-term courses, leading study abroad trips, travel to Japan, Mexico, Africa, and other Asian locations.”
Dr. Davis is also a copy editor for the Journal of Eastern Europe and Central Asian Research (JEECAR), and was appointed to be the Deputy Editor for that journal in 2015. She holds a CPA, PHR certification, and SHRM-CP certifications.
“My education at Wayland was a large part of the reason that I chose to continue my education. The encouragement that I received led me to want to know more and to want to become a professor to help students to achieve their goals as well.”
