Welcoming 9 New Business Faculty

On this first week of fall 2021, the Maine Business School and Graduate School of Business are now home to over 1,600 students at the BSBA and MBA levels of study. “We are grateful that we are also welcoming new faculty to our ranks to reach these students and foster their growth and progress to degree completion,” says Faye Gilbert, Ph.D., executive dean of the Maine Business School. “It’s a jittery COVID world out here, and our faculty and staff are to be commended for their grit and determination to CARE – connect with students and each other, adapt to the current conditions, respect others, and engage people to enrich learning.”
