Biography

Alphonso O. Ogbuehi, D.B.A., was recently appointed as the dean of the School of Business and Management at Park University.

Ogbuehi said he was attracted to Park because of its long history and tradition, as well as the University's vision of a global campus. "There are opportunities to create an exciting campus for business education. I was also particularly impressed with President Beverley Byers-Pevitts, Ph.D., commitment to a world-class campus in which the School of Business and Management would serve as a major anchor in preparing tomorrow's business leaders."

Prior to Ogbuehi's appointment at Park, he served as a professor of marketing and international business at Bryant University, Smithfield, R.I. Proceeding his position at Bryant, Ogbuehi was the director of the Master of Science in International Marketing program in the Erivan K.

This culminated in the granting of accreditation by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

Over the past several years, Ogbuehi has traveled extensively in various administrative capacities to countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Western Europe. He pioneered the first study tour program to China and Southeast Asia at Saint Joseph's University. Under his leadership, the inaugural overseas experiential learning program for the international business program at Bryant University was initiated and implemented with visits to France, Germany and Italy in 2006.

"My experiences in global business education will be an asset as we forge a new era in the School of Business and Management at Park University," he said.
