Beverly Jones

Dr. Beverly Jones, associate professor of Management
Ph.D. from Union Institute in Management

What Jones appreciates most about Kettering students is their time management skills. She went into teaching because she wanted to share her knowledge and professional experience and she's glad she did because of her interaction with what she calls "smart, assertive thinkers" at Kettering.

She encourages all prospective students to come to Kettering for the outstanding learning experience cooperative education has to offer.
