Introduction for the New UIC Liautaud Graduate School of Business Director of Recruiting and Enrollment

Hello Everyone,

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to both the Liautaud community and prospective students alike. B-school admissions is my passion, you will soon come to learn. I enjoy finding talented future business leaders and innovators and helping them connect with the tools that they need to propel their careers forward. My role is to help you understand the resources offered at Liautaud, assist you in navigating the admissions process, and helping you to enroll in our programs so that you are prepared for your academic experience from day one.

I come to UIC from the Monterey Institute of International Studies where since 2006 I have been Enrollment Manager for the Graduate School of International Policy and Management, the division that includes the school’s MBA program.

Prior to my experience at Monterey, I served as Executive Director of a Small Business Development Center at George Mason University’s Enterprise Center. In addition, I have worked as a portfolio manager, spent time as a non-profit business manager, and served two years as a business volunteer in the Peace Corps in Jordan. I graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a BS in Finance and completed my MBA at the Monterey Institute.

I hope to post regular updates and tips to help applicants through the admissions process; so please keep checking back! In the meantime, please keep these important dates in mind:
