MBA student invited to PhD Project conference

November 16, 2011—The PhD Project, an award-winning program to create diversity in management, has invited University of Redlands business student, Tiffany Eggleston of Rancho Cucamonga, to attend the annual PhD Project Conference, being held at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare Chicago, IL from November 16-18, 2011.

The PhD Project was created in 1994 to address the severe under-representation of African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans and Native Americans in management by diversifying the front of the classroom-the business school faculty. A diverse faculty encourages more minorities to pursue business degrees, thereby increasing the pool of minority applicants for positions in today’s multicultural corporate environment.

“Tiffany has been in our program for about a year and a half and for all of that time she has been a very positive inspiration for her fellow students. She has always been a champion for motivating herself and her classmates with her optimism and energy. Tiffany Eggleston is an examplar as a Redlands School of Business student through her serious attitude towards education and continued development,” said Ken Coleman, University of Redlands Rancho Cucamonga Campus Director.

Qualified candidates are invited to this two and a half-day annual conference where they hear from deans, professors and current minority doctoral students about the benefits of pursuing a business Ph.D. Candidates are exposed to more than 100 doctoral-granting universities that are represented during a university exhibit fair at the conference. Networking with the university reps, deans, professors and current doctoral students provides candidates with the tools and resources they need to be better prepared for the application/admission process to doctoral programs.
