The University of Central Oklahoma College of Business recently named Dini Homsey, Ph.D., the new Master of Business Administration (MBA) program director.

“We are very glad that Dr. Homsey will be leading our MBA program.  Dr. Homsey is well known for her student-centered approach in teaching, scholarship and administration.  We are confident that our MBA program will advance significantly in all aspects under her guidance,”  said Monica Lam, Ph.D., dean of the UCO College of Business.

“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 also is an associate professor in the marketing department. She has been with the UCO College of Business since August 2008 and began teaching in the MBA Program in fall 2016.

After receiving her bachelor’s degree from Boston College in communication, Homsey completed her master’s degree in communication from the University of Oklahoma. Homsey received her doctorate in organizational communication from the University of Oklahoma and completed her post-doctoral bridge (PDB) program in marketing and management from the University of Florida.

“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. The future for our students and our program is bright and I’m thrilled to be a part of it,” Homsey added.

Central’s MBA is a 35-hour program that can be completed in 16 months.  All classes are offered in the evenings in the heart of downtown Oklahoma City at UCO Downtown. Students have the option to choose a major in either healthcare or energy systems. The program is offered in a cohort-based format designed to provide teambuilding, networking and career-building opportunities for students.
