Jordan Hahn, Senior Product Manager, Vendavo
"When Haskayne launched the DBA program, it ended up being a great match for my research interests and made a lot of sense logistically for my path to doctoral completion. The program structure allows me to explore different research questions and formats, and my prospective supervisor and I hit it off right away with some inspiring and challenging discussions about a range of topics of mutual interest."
"I think the thing I appreciate most is how much Haskayne embraces the applied research focus of the DBA as a coequal complement to traditional, more theoretical PhD research. The mission really comes through from across the leadership we've had the pleasure of interacting with, and gives your research a sense of purpose and traction- we're working to keep up and extend the relevance and impact of business research in the real world."

Jordan’s research focuses on "commercial excellence” - strategic orientation, pricing practices, and customer co-creation of value, using the hospitality technology industry as an example case of a “B2B2C” environment. He is specifically interested in strategy and execution in situations where customers/buyers are distinct and separate from end-users.
