Since joining the Lee faculty, Thompson has established his reputation as a highly effective professor of business policy and ethics and has served as the department chair for three years.
“It is an honor to serve such an exceptional organization as ACBSP. I believe in the organization, the quality of the accreditation process, and the people that make it all possible,” said Thompson. “It is good to be involved in important work that holds high standards to further quality business education.”
Lee’s Department of Business has been officially recognized by ACBSP since 2008.
