His work has been published in many top business and education journals. He also has written textbooks and developed a variety of instructional material. He has lectured internationally, including in India, New Zealand, China, the United Kingdom, Italy, Greece, Belgium and the Netherlands.

A K-State faculty member since 1995, McHaney teaches courses in management of information systems, information resources management, software development and digital technologies.

McHaney was recognized for his excellence in teaching by being named K-State's 2006-2007 Coffman Chair for University Distinguished Teaching Scholars.
