Business Faculty and Administration


Faculty in the Assumption College MBA program are “expert practitioners” who are keenly reflective about their practice and deeply devoted to teaching. All MBA Assumption faculty members are highly qualified in several dimensions. First, and most important, they are excellent teachers. In addition, all have one or more degrees in business, the majority of which are terminal degrees, coupled with years of practitioner experience. They’ve learned it, they’ve done it, and they’re uniquely suited to pass on their knowledge and experience to others. Assumption faculty members posses unusually broad backgrounds. In addition to business degrees, our faculty members have earned advanced degrees in more than 20 academic disciplines beyond Business Studies, including Communications, Law, Philosophy, Education, Sociology, Psychology, English, Economics, and more. As a result, our graduates learn not only about business, but also about how business fits into the rest of the world.
