MBA Faculty & Staff

Our faculty publish in premier journals, have spent decades practicing business in the real world and uniquely value the human connections. They will take the time to learn your name, advocate for you and be an invaluable resource throughout your academic and professional career. Our instructors are evaluated not only on the richness of their knowledge and teaching, but also on the content of their character. Along with full-time faculty, the Whitworth MBA also proudly employs a select group of Instructional Practitioners, business professionals who bring a wealth of experiential knowledge, industry connections and professional resources to your classroom.
