Greetings Prospective and Current Students,

As the MBA Graduate Coordinator, I’m here to assist you in many different ways to ensure your success in your program of study. My purpose is to provide you with advisement services on a range of academic and related issues. Additionally, I serve as a liaison between you as a student with faculty and/or administration as necessary. One important responsibility of mine is that I ensure that all university policies and standards are met in relation to grades, graduation requirements, admissions, withdrawals, and associated issues.

With regards to prospective students who have applied to the program, I will be the individual to review and screen your application and accept you into the program once you have met all requirements.

I look forward to working with each and every one of you and wish you the utmost success in all your current and future endeavors.
