New MBA Program Director
Associate Professor Dini Homsey has been named the new program director for the Master of Business Administration (MBA) program at the University of Central Oklahoma.
“It is an honor to be selected as the new MBA Program Director and I look forward to working with our amazing students, dedicated faculty, skilled staff and supportive business partners as we continue to innovate and grow the UCO MBA,” Homsey said.
Homsey has been working with UCO College of Business as an associate professor in the Marketing Department since August 2008. She also started teaching in the MBA program during fall 2016.
“The MBA program was managed by the interim assistant dean Dr. Steve Black last year,” said Sarah Ward, the college’s coordinator of Communications and Marketing.
The college began the search for a new permanent director after Black transitioned out of the interim dean position, according to Ward.
“Our program is unique in that it provides a transformative experience for students as they work on challenging projects, network with key partners, engage in international immersions and prepare to become vital leaders in their communities,” Homsey said. “The future for our students and our program is bright and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
Ward said that upcoming changes will be focused on improving the MBA experience for students. The program/college will perform proper research and engage with all stake holders when making any changes.
Homsey completed her master’s degree in communications from the University of Oklahoma and her bachelor’s degree in communications from Boston College. She received her doctorate in organizational communication from the University of Oklahoma and completed her post-doctoral bridge program in marketing and management from the University of Florida.
There will be an open house about the MBA program on Oct. 23 at 6:30 p.m. at UCO’s downtown campus in the Carnegie Center at 131 Dean A. McGee Ave. Registration is open on the MBA website.
