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 to 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.

All Business students will learn basic and practical accounting, financial accounting, microeconomics, financing, business law, and marketing lessons.

They explore topics such as business strategies, payment systems, e-marketing, e-fulfillment, security, ethics, and legal issues specific to doing business online. Our professors make extensive use of the internet to link these core concepts to real-life applications so our students aren't just knowledgeable -- they're prepared for a career.
