Dr. Charlene Glenn is a full Professor and Fulbright Scholar in the Business Division at Peirce College. She has over 25 years of experience in higher education. Her experience includes: business instruction of undergraduate and graduate students – online, hybrid and face-to-face delivery models – curriculum development, student development programming, developing outcomes assessment programs, accreditation reporting, management accountability of academic support services and grant writing.

Through her Fulbright Scholarship in Barbados, she engaged in various scholarly activities that included facilitating a professional development series – Developing an Agile Mindset for the Competitive Business Landscape for business and industry professionals; facilitated a Business Continuity session for the Academy of Women Entrepreneurs in Barbados; and served as a guest lecturer at Barbados Community College for a Small Business Development and Entrepreneurship course. 

Dr. Glenn is committed providing soft skills training for students because she believes students should leave the College equipped with academic knowledge and business tools to succeed in business. Given the shifting needs of employers due to the pandemic, economic fluctuations, corporate re-organizations, and social justice issues; Dr. Glenn developed the Level Up Series designed to strengthen students’ survival skills in the work environment that focused on business etiquette, mindset changes, and resilience.  

In a consultant capacity, Dr. Glenn and other faculty around the country developed a two-year major field test in business for the Educational Testing Service (ETS). She is also a certified external evaluator for the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) and has served on several site team visits for institutions seeking accreditation or re-affirmation of their business programs.

Through her passion for women’s issues and gender equality, Dr. Glenn serves as an Education Thought Leader for the iSAW (International Strategic Accelerator for Women) organization where she supports the organization with sharing current and relevant education articles that advance women and their work in the academy.

Additionally, she authored an article in the first edition of The 1865: Peirce College Law Journal, titled, “May the Force Majeure Be With You: How this Contract Clause May Be Used in Light of COVID-19 at

 Prior to joining the education field, she worked in the banking industry for six years in the commercial finance and credit areas.

Outside of her professional life, she loves fashion, travel and golf.

    Peirce College's full-time Accounting degree faculty teach courses both online and on-campus in Center City, Philadelphia. Our accounting professors will teach you both theoretical and real-life application lessons on major accounting principles and procedures. You'll learn all of the skills and competencies needed to make informed and sound decisions based on hard financial data. Our Accounting faculty members teach students how to analyze balance sheets, cash, inventories, investments, tangible fixed assets, liabilities, intangible assets, and more.

    After you've learned these core accounting skills, you'll then glean more advanced principles such as intensive study of financial statements, including the income statement, statement of cash flow and balance sheet and their interrelationship. You'll also study the individual components of balance sheets: fixed assets, liabilities, investments in debt, and equity securities.

    After you've learned about taxation, cost accounting, computerized accounting, auditing, and managerial accounting you'll move toward the final lessons of our Accounting degree program. In your capstone class, our faculty will task you with reviewing, analyzing and integrating all of the work you've completed for them to date and demonstrating your mastery of accounting principles.
