Prof. Azoulay teaches:
HAC 066 Digital and Interactive Marketing: Who’s Watching You?

Teaching Philosophy:

My teaching philosophy is a “hands-on” approach to learning. I believe in my students’ ability to learn, but also to suggest, comment, question and most importantly contribute their ideas. My goal is to empower students and have them “absorb” the information rather than memorize it. With that in mind, my focus in class is to guide thinking and learning while at the same time encouraging active participation. I tend to create a relaxed environment with laughing and jokes so that we have fun too!

On Precollege Programs:

What a brilliant idea to explore a future career or interest now. Why wait! I think taking a Precollege course can jump-start a lifelong journey of success. Since enthusiasm is the main driver of my teaching style, I am delighted to bring this passion to high school students and spark interest for their future.

Industry Experience:

  • Head of Diamond Edge Network
  • As a motivational speaker, Renee has presented for leading organizations that include The NY Emmys, American Women in Radio & Television, Columbia University, the Professional Insurance Marketing Association, The Brand Activation Association (BAA, formerly the PMA), the eMarketing Association, the NY Builders Show, and the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce.
  • Promotional campaigns for NBA, The U.S. Postal Service, Spalding, Revlon and MTV Networks (Nickelodeon)
