MBA Grad is Named Top 40 Under 40

  • Author: Wednesday, February 19th, 2014

Dr. Jeremy Kees, a 2001 WKU MBA graduate, was named one of the “40 Most Outstanding Business Profs Under 40 in the World” by the Poets & Quants social network website.

Dr. Kees is an Associate Professor of Marketing and the Richard Naclerio Emerging Scholar in Public Policy at Villanova University. His research focused on cigarette warning labels and anti-smoking interventions that played a key role in the Food and Drug Administration’s proposal to add graphic images to cigarette packages.

Poets & Quants asked business school officials, faculty, students, and alumni for nominations and they selected the Top 40 based on their ability to create an engaging classroom environment, build genuine relationships with their students, and their research agenda.

Dr. Kees has taught at Villanova since 2006. He is married with two children.

The WKU MBA program ranks within the Top 5% of business schools for quality and in the Top 10% in affordability. Visit www.wku.edu/mba for more information.
