Meet the Faculty

massey infograph

The Massey School is unusual in that it considers both a faculty member’s academic pedigree as well as his/her professional experience prior to assigning an individual into a Massey graduate business classroom.  As shown in the word cloud above, our faculty have prepared academically at many of the top Ph.D. granting institutions in the United States. Just as importantly, though, to our graduate students is the professional backgrounds these individuals bring into their classrooms.  

We hope you will take the time to review the individual faculty bios below.  We think you will develop a profound appreciation for how well qualified these individuals are to partner with our graduate students in the learning process and will better understand how our graduates continue to benefit from this dual approach to faculty qualification within The Massey School.
