Foster MBA Faculty
100 percent passionate about your education The quality of the faculty is what you would expect for a nationally ranked research university. In a word, outstanding. Their dynamic teaching methods are praised by students. Their research is published widely and their work is respected by colleagues. Foster MBA professors Mark Hillier, Charles Hill, Robert Higgins and many others have even written books on the MBA topics they teach.
Study with eminent business faculty Many faculty members consult with organizations around the world, allowing them to bring current business issues, and engaging guest speakers to the classroom. Faculty members regularly update courses and the curriculum as a whole to ensure that the program remains relevant and academically challenging.
Committed to teaching Considering the prestige of the faculty, what students don’t expect is the individual attention they receive. Faculty members are personally invested in making courses a successful learning experience. They’re also highly accessible to MBA students. Their doors are open during office hours. They answer phone calls and e-mails. You’ll even find them at potluck dinners where they can get to know their students on a one-on-one basis.
Involved advisors and coaches Faculty engagement is key in this small MBA program with many choices. Whether you are preparing for a marketing plan competition or participating in a consulting project, faculty advisors serve as guides, mentors, sounding boards…and some of your most demanding critics.
Ranked first in productivity The Foster School of Business has the nation’s most prolific faculty in the area of business administration according to the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index, (2007) published by Academic Analytics, a company owned partially by the State University of New York at Stony Brook.
