Meet Professor Scott Lewis. 

Scott is Lead Faculty for Service Management & Leadership at NAU–Yavapai. Scott is passionate about this new program that provides graduates with a foundation in management and leadership principles, making them more marketable in their endeavors.  He teaches and oversees courses including Leadership, Customer Service, Management and Operations, Marketing, Sales, and Business Technology. 

Originally from San Diego, Scott holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting and a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in International Management.

After earning his M.B.A., Scott worked as an information technology systems and operations auditor and consultant for Coopers and Lybrand, LLC., Transamerica Corporation and Toyota Headquarters. He also worked as an investment broker. 

Scott brings his years of practical experience into the classroom. “Coming from the real world into this capacity as an instructor has provided me with the ability to bring forward ideas that have actually worked,” he says. “I’ve used these ideas to help businesses succeed.” 

But Scott doesn’t just use his own experiences to shape the curriculum in his classrooms. Scott also maintains an advisory board of industry professionals to guide him on what he teaches his students. “It’s exciting that they’re helping us shape our program,” he says. 

Scott also brings a collaborative energy to his classroom. “Students shouldn’t be afraid to talk to their professors, ” he says. “We have an open door policy here.” 

To Scott, teaching is about creating a community. “It’s about creating a happy, joyful environment where students can engage and learn.”
