Dr. S. Charles Malka is a professor at Sullivan University's Graduate Business Program. Malka's professional background combines a vast experience in both business and academic spheres.
A former president of numerous franchises in KY and IN for close to two decades, an acknowledged entrepreneur, and a recipient of national achievement awards from Gingiss International Inc. of Chicago - small business management is his passion. He advised small businesses with Transfer and Acquisition transactions while a Principal at Fortune BTA of Louisville, and served scores of small businesses across the U.S. as a Senior Business Analyst with the Buffalo-Grove, IL based consulting firm IPA-IBA.
His early consulting work, as an associate at the Conservation Company, a Philadelphia based firm - with an extensive portfolio of corporate and state clients – focused on state funded programs. He co-authored studies commissioned by Pennsylvania and New York States - exploring rate setting options for financing of state programs – and was a co-developer of a cost effective model for day care management in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County. The latter was adopted for use in State supported programs throughout Pennsylvania.
In his previous academic career, Dr. Malka was a faculty member at Israel's Haifa University, and Ottawa University where he helped grow and coordinate the MBA and MAHR programs. In addition to his instructional responsibilities at HU, he helped develop and coordinate a country-wide two-year management training program for administrators in human service organizations. He also engaged in advising corporate-based EAP directors with focus on human resource and employee support systems. At OU, he was instrumental in strengthening the quality and rigor of the MBA program and its OU-Indiana instructors base, and was the author of materials used to gain state recognition for the MAHR program. He served as an active member of OU's Faculty Development Committee, and the Online Faculty Council.
Malka's teaching and research interests focus on strategy, leadership, human resource management, and entrepreneurship. He is the author of several research articles published in peer-reviewed scientific journals dealing with leadership, management, evaluation, and performance appraisal issues. At Sullivan University, he is the recipient of a 2012 research grant for the study of the chronically unemployed aimed at exploring interventions that enhance job search capabilities, and ultimately - for securing employment and rejoining the labor market.
Dr. Malka earned a B.S.W from the University of Haifa, an M.A in HR management and Industrial Relations from the University of Tel-Aviv's School of Labor Studies, a PhD from the University of Pittsburgh with a concentration in EAPs, and an MBA from Ottawa University. His doctorate dissertation entitled "Retirement Preparation: A Model for the Workplace and Correlates of Well Being" was based on an IBM employee sample.
He was voted best faculty member for 1987 by the Student Council at the University of Haifa, and was declared a Distinguished Citizen in 1983 by Louisville Mayor Harvey Sloane as a tribute to his work as an ambassador of good will to the U.S.
An active member of Temple Shalom congregation, he resides in Oldham County, KY and enjoys cycling, golf and travel.
