Event & Recruitment Manager

I am the events and recruitment manager for the MBA Programs Office. I get to know students through the admission process, and I plan all of our networking and fun social events. Students come to see me regarding questions about the GMAT/GRE prep courses, admission process and upcoming events, or if they just simply need a joke or a smile.

I manage the operations of the MBA Programs Office, including marketing, recruiting, admissions, student services, and alumni relations. This allows me to work with students throughout their journey, which I love.

Ashley Prince

Ashley Prince

Student Services Coordinator

I work as a student services advisor for the MBA Programs Office. I get to know students at the start of their MBA journey, when we meet to look over their degree plans, register for courses and discuss general program policies. I meet with students regularly throughout their programs. I am always available for students to stop in with questions or if they just want to say a quick hi before running to class.

As associate director, I primarily prepare Professional MBA students for their job search and connect with MBA recruiters and companies who value exceptional talent. I am honored to work with such well-respected and nationally ranked programs. Whether the goal is your next “dream” job, success in your current job or developing skills to position you for the next step in your career, a clear vision and strategy are the first steps to developing a compelling personal brand. Please contact me when you are ready to launch your career to the next level.
Lisa Shatz

Lisa Shatz

Assistant Dean

Most of my time is spent in developing strategies to move our MBA program forward in quality, in exposure and in rankings. When I’m not in meetings, I like to work directly with students, especially as it pertains to their goals for the future. When I can, I take students on trips to large metro areas where they can visit companies and meet our alumni. I also spend a great amount of time working with alumni and putting together programs to enable them to engage with our students.
Michelle Swensen

Michelle Swensen

Assistant Director, Student Services

I oversee the day-to-day student services needs of the MBA Programs Office. I serve our students in a variety of ways, including helping fast-track students understand the MBA degree plan, helping current MS students add the MBA degree, and with standard MBA student advising. Whether it be a conversation regarding career plan, academic plan or personal life goals, I enjoy shepherding students through to the next phase of their lives.

Jeff Taylor

Admission Coordinator

My primary role is to meet with and help guide prospective candidates — with particular emphasis on the Professional Flex and Professional MBA Online program. I take great pride in helping candidates discover the right program fit for them. I look forward to meeting you soon!

MBA Business Development

Nothing makes me happier than to see a student land an opportunity with a company they cannot wait to work for and build a career with. I strive to build partnerships with employers to seek out career opportunities and organize employer events for our Full-time MBA Cohort. Whether it is a coffee chat with an employer on our campus or a site visit to theirs, these opportunities allow me to connect students with working professionals to create meaningful interactions. The talent of these students is limitless and I truly enjoy advocating for them as I look to build further on our MBA pipeline with employers.
