Terry McCuneTerry McCune was recently named Assistant Director of Graduate and Adult Business Programs.  While assuming the responsibilities as the Assistant Director Terry continues to work as a Lecturer in the MBA program at Mount St Mary’s University’s Frederick Campus.  Dean of the Bolte School of Business Karl Einolf had these words to share about Terry’s recent appointment, “Terry brings a passion for higher education and a wealth of experience to his new position.  He has done an exceptional job developing our programs in government contracting, and in his new role he will help to grow our graduate and adult business programs in Frederick. We are delighted to have him as a member of our Frederick team!”

Terry obtained his undergraduate degree in Health Care Management from Park University and Master of Science degree in Contracts and Acquisition Management from Florida Institute of Technology.  Following 24 years of military service, he worked in the Defense contracting industry and in the Federal Government as a civilian. As a Contracting Branch Chief at Fort Detrick, he developed contracting courses through a partnership agreement with the U. S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command and Mount St. Mary's University.

In November 2012 the Mount and Fort Detrick signed a two-year agreement for him to review Fort Detrick’s contract documents for statutory and regulatory compliance and develop training to correct negative trends. He also was a voting member of Fort Detrick's Contract Review Board to evaluate acquisition strategies, solicitations and contract documents for complex, high dollar acquisitions. During this time, he developed a Graduate Certificate in Government Contracting through the Mount. Following the course development, in addition to teaching, he obtained accreditation for the courses with the Department of Defense.

HeatherMy name is Heather Tysowski, I am from Western Canada and was looking to gain international experience after completing my Bachelors of Business Administration Degree with a dual major in Human Resources Management and Management Administration in Canada. When looking for potential graduate programs I wanted a school that offered small intimate class sizes, a place where a student could get to know professors and fellow students in order to make strong professional long lasting connections and a program that offered a one-year accelerated program. Fortunately for me, Mount St. Mary's offered all the items on the checklist and more.

After applying and receiving my acceptance letter into Mount St. Mary's University, I had my choices narrowed down to three different graduate schools. What seperated the Mount from the other two universities was how Deborah Powell, Director of Graduate and Adult Business Programs in the Richard J. Bolte, Sr. School of Business, personally took time out of her busy schedule to answer all my e-mails, concerns and international requirements required to attend school in the United States. The way Deborah Powell diligently answered all of my questions showed that Mount St. Mary's University was truly the graduate school they advertised to be.
