MBA Research
Serving high school and post-secondary educators and administrators
Not-for-profit, research-based support for all Business Administration educators: entrepreneurship, finance, hospitality, management/administration, and marketing.

A New CEO: Dr. Brenda Clark

MBA Research has been providing support to Business Administration programs for the past 40+ years under the leadership of Dr. Jim Gleason. Jim's focus on providing support for teachers in the classroom, research-based standards, developing partnerships, and supporting each of you has made this a strong organization. Jim retired as of February 28 and the board has given me the honor to succeed him as CEO/President.

My background includes 34 years as a business administration teacher, CTE Director, CTSO advisor, WBL coordinator, state leader, and as adjunct faculty at the community college and university level. For the past three years, I have served as the Director of Professional Development for MBA Research. In that role, I had the opportunity to work with many of you and your teachers. You all continue to inspire me -- I know our students are lucky to have such dedicated professionals who work tirelessly on their behalf.

The leadership team at MBA Research met on March 1st to begin the work of planning for the future -- work that will continue throughout the month of March.  

I look forward to working with you. I will be at the Advanced CTE meeting in Washington, D.C. in April and would love to talk with each of you. 

If you have ideas, suggestions, or just want to talk, please don't hesitate to reach out to me via email (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or phone (614.486.6708 x215).
