    Dr. John Simon, Associate Professor of Business

    With a background in engineering and management sciences, I find business to be a rich area in terms of challenges as well as opportunities for making a difference. Continuous learning is essential to a manager’s career, and often models and analysis provide insight for those improvements. The GSU MBA offers a broad understanding of the issues and strategies, as well as a rigorous focus on analytical approaches. This provides a balance that serves students well in their understanding as well as in their ability to implement new concepts and processes in response to unique opportunities and challenges at work. The program offers specializations in leadership, finance, business analytics and supply chain management, and emerging jobs and the potential for growth make these specializations very valuable.
