Jeffrey E. Johnson, Ph.D., never assumes the classroom is the final resting point for learning, especially when it comes to topics of international business. After having the chance to travel through approximately 90 countries throughout the world, he believes it is important for students to be exposed to international cultures and business opportunities.

Johnson manages various international opportunities for students in the Greehey School of Business. This includes organizing and coaching teams of Greehey students to compete internationally in the Network of International Business Schools Worldwide Case Competition. In recent years, he has taken students to compete in England, Finland, Guatemala, and Canada. Johnson is also very active in leading Greehey students on study abroad learning experiences. He has led 19 study abroad trips while at St. Mary’s, taking students to more than 20 countries spanning 5 continents.

Johnson believes that not only does this help increase their awareness of other cultures, but it helps students stand out when they are ready to search for jobs after graduation. Outside of the classroom, Johnson enjoys travelling the world with his family and experiencing the richness of cultures. He is also active in guest teaching at universities in Europe, Latin America and Asia. Moreover, he serves on the Board of Directors of the Network of International Business Schools and is very involved with student learning experiences across the globe.


His recent articles have been published in the International Business Review, Journal of World Business, Journal of Global Operations and Strategic Sourcing, Industrial Marketing Management, European Management Journal, Journal of International Entrepreneurship, Journal of Teaching in International Business, Journal of International Business Education, Journal of Entrepreneurship Education, International Journal of Entrepreneurship, Journal of Global Awareness, Global Focus and Hallway Case Journal.
