Recognizing This Year’s Outstanding Faculty Honoree…
It is with great pride that the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics recognizes Dr. Lori A. Muse as this year’s recipient of the Outstanding Faculty honor.
Pursuing her passion for higher education and teaching, Dr. Muse became a Professor of Management after serving for more than 10 years as a public accountant. She consistently earns the respect of her undergraduate and MBA students alike who remark on her demonstrated expertise, exceptional communication skills, and uncanny ability to engage the class. Dr. Muse emphasizes an active learning style which combines a variety of instructional media and practical applications in order to challenge students every day.
With publications in The Journal of Organizational Behavior, The Journal of Vocational Behavior, and Community, Work and Family, Dr. Muse’s applied research addresses issues in global work-life/work-family policies. Being selected as a distinguished scholar by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, Dr. Muse represents California State University and the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics among a very talented network of academic professionals. She is also the winner of an Outstanding Paper Award for 2009, received at the annual conference for the Academy of Management.
Since first joining the Mihaylo faculty in 2008, Dr. Muse has been an exemplary proponent of the College’s role in the Orange County business community. Her efforts were critical in the development of the full-time MBA program, which launched in the fall of 2011. In response to feedback provided by local employers, Dr. Muse helped champion the Mihaylo Leadership Academy (MLA) to help instill our graduates with the “soft skills” that are in-demand in today’s business world. There is no doubt that she will continue to be an asset as she leads the MBA Steering Committee in planning the Executive MBA program for 2013. Read more »
