Christine M. Kiely serves as the Fox School’s Associate Vice Dean for MBA, MS, and International Programs. She manages a complicated set of logistics for the Graduate Division, containing three domestic MBA programs (Global MBA, Part-Time MBA, and Online MBA) and 14 specialized master’s programs, and serving more than 1,600 students.
In addition, Kiely’s portfolio encompasses Fox’s international programs and activities, including undergraduate exchange programs, graduate, and undergraduate short-term study abroad, immersions, graduate partner programs, and the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER).
Prior to joining the Fox School of Business, Kiely was Executive Director of MBA Programs at The George Washington University, where she was tasked with unifying a fragmented graduate division, consisting of five MBA programs and encompassing more than 1,200 students. Before that, she was the head of a global, private, volunteer organization, funded primarily by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Under USAID’s private sector initiative, the organization sent recently-graduated MBAs to emerging markets to consult with local companies, advisory centers and business support organizations to aid in the growth and development of the private sector in developing economies.
Kiely cut her teeth in international publishing in Manhattan in the late 1980s. She is a collaborative, high-energy leader who brings to her work considerable management expertise and analytical ability, combined with excellent communication skills, a strong work ethic, an appreciation for diversity and a passion for program development, implementation and improvement.
Kiely received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology, Linguistics, and Psychology from Binghamton University. She earned her MBA in Accounting, Human Resources, and Marketing from the University of Georgia.
