Assistant Professor, Department of Business

“Earning an MBA can provide students with a leg up in the job market, both through demonstrating to your current employer that you have a strong desire to better yourself or through giving yourself additional skills that would help you start your own enterprise. I’ve had students tell me that their MBA was a crucial difference maker when it came time for new hiring and promotion.
The RSU MBA program really distinguishes itself through its small class sizes, which allow the professors to work more closely with students and take a mentoring role to help students through graduate school and their careers.”
