Cynthia Pavett's publications have spanned a range of topics from cross-cultural organizational behavior to quality management. Her latest publication focuses on cultural value differences across generations within the U.S. While she enjoys teaching organizational behavior, comparative management, organization design and negotiations, she loves teaching these courses in exotic locations like Ching, Prague, the Gold Coast of Australia, Yerevan, Innsbruck, Pairsi or any place outside of her home town of San Diego. Living and teaching abroad has enhanced her understanding of working with people whose cultural values differ from those of her own.  In addition to teaching in SBA's undergraduate and graduate programs, she also teaches in the MSGl (Master of Science in Global Leadership) program.  She has served as a reviewer for numerous academic journals and  conferences and is a past-president of an academically-oriented organization (WDSI).
