The Faculty

The Department of Graduate Studies commits itself to teaching, research, and service to meet the needs of supply chain logistics-related fields. Faculty members (https://mainemaritime.edu/academics/category/ibl-faculty/) and visiting consultants are selected for excellence in teaching, as well as for intellectual contributions and scholarship exemplified typically by practitioner-oriented research. Moreover, the faculty has experience working with business, governmental agencies, and regulatory bodies. They are also experienced in providing management development programs in the United States and abroad.

Resident professors provide the nucleus of the graduate faculty. The modular format used during the summer months makes it possible for highly qualified visiting professors from other business schools and expert consultants from industry to participate. Each professor is a dedicated teacher selected for his or her effective classroom techniques. All resident graduate faculty members are available to mentor and advise the graduate students. The mentoring process begins during the application stage and continues until the candidates’ successful completion of the program.
