Faculty Spotlight

Betty J. Whitesell, Ph.D
Dean of the School of Business and Professional Studies - Professor of Business (2011)

It is exciting we can offer our students a chance to focus on in a specific area of business, sports administration, or a “build-your-own”.  I have worked with students to combine marketing and graphic design, health care administration and human resources management, entrepreneurship with agricultural management, marketing with sports administration, as well as helped students choose a specific emphasis as finance or entrepreneurship. And adding MBA courses through our MBA Link program – we can provide a focus tailored to specific business interests or career choice!  Students I have spoken with see the benefit of completing the business administration major with an emphasis as a way broaden career opportunities and still focus on  an area of interest.
