Zarb Student Success Stories

Name: Kunal Swani
Employer: Assistant Professor of Marketing at Wright State University

My MBA from Hofstra University was a foundational stone to my successful career path. I am an assistant professor of marketing at Wright State University and I owe this career success to the marketing faculty at Hofstra for their help, support and guidance.

At Hofstra, I had an opportunity to work with Dr. Barry Berman who elevated my interest in research and teaching. He even coauthored a paper with me which was published in one of the renowned marketing journals. His guidance and support made me realize my interest in academia and initiated my zeal to pursue a PhD in marketing. I enjoyed similar support and guidance from other marketing faculty. For instance, I also was privileged to work with Dr. Boonghee Yoo and published an article with him of equal caliber. I was grateful to the all the marketing faculty for their guidance, wisdom, and assistance as I was initiating my intellectual journey to pursue my career goals.

My MBA along with research publications and various other skills that I learned and honed at Hofstra was a great stepping stone to start my career in academia. The faculty have vested interest to ensure that students succeed in their career goals. Even today, I rely on the faculty time-to-time on academic and career advice. Over the years I have developed a close relationship with the faculty and I consider them as my new extended family!
