Core Faculty Online - Associate Professor


Biography

Dr. Gloria Zúñiga y Postigo is Associate Professor in the doctoral program of Organizational Development and Leadership in the Advanced Management Studies Department at the Forbes School of Business & Technology. Dr. Zúñiga y Postigo holds a PhD in philosophy, a Master’s in economics (ABT), and a Bachelor’s degree in business and economics. Owing to her broad, interdisciplinary education, her areas of specialization include business ethics and the ontology of social organizations and social phenomena.

“Philosophy,” she frequently reminds her students, “is not only a pathway for abstract thought and scientific investigation. Philosophy teaches us practical tools—such as logical and moral reasoning—that guide us in our discovery of truth in the many aspects of our everyday lives. These tools empower us to apply critical thinking in our relations with other persons so that we can view disagreement as a collaborative opportunity, and embrace diversity in views, appearances, and cultures as part of the rich characteristics of humankind.”

Dr. Zúñiga y Postigo began her tenure at the University of Arizona Global Campus in the philosophy group, in the former Science and Humanities department. In 2015, she became the lead faculty for the undergraduate business ethics courses at the university. She has taught a variety of undergraduate courses—such as introduction to philosophy, introduction to ethics, reality and cognition, and informal logic. She has also co-authored a textbook in logic that is currently employed in all the undergraduate logic courses at the university. Presently, she teaches courses in the doctoral program for organizational development and leadership, including business ethics.
