Newest Addition to MBA Admissions at Michigan Tech

Meet JJodie R. Filpus, MBA Recruitment and Admissionsodie Filpus, Newest Member of Tech MBA Online Recruitment and Admissions

From the Windy City of Chicago returning to the wonderland of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Jodie Filpus, began working with MBA Admissions in August.   Jodie wants to take a moment to say hi and introduce herself.

Hello Tech MBA Online World,

In August this Yooper returned “home” to the U.P. and began working at the School of Business and Economics with the MBA programs.   Since 2000 I have lived in Fargo, ND; Duluth, MN; and Schaumburg (just outside of Chicago), IL and worked at three colleges (North Dakota State University, The University of Minnesota-Duluth, and The Illinois Institute of Art-Schaumburg).  It is exciting to now be working for Michigan Tech as I grew up a Tech Husky fan.

My background is a B.S. in Speech Communication and a M.A. in Educational Leadership.  I have been working with students and helping to serve and guide them through the University setting for over ten years.  Now I cannot wait to assist you.

When I am not working in the School of Business and Economics I am with my family.  Our six year old boy keeps us busy playing football, racing remote control cars, doing homework, playing video games, fishing, and biking.  When I have some downtime I personally I enjoy golfing, cooking, traveling, entertaining friends and snowmobiling.

I am excited to work with each of you as you prepare for the next step in your professional career—earning your MBA. Doing it online at Michigan Tech.  Please feel free to contact me at mba@mtu.edu; call at 906-487-3055 or find me online at http://facebook.com/Jodie.TechMBA.  I look forward to talking to you more in the near future.

All my Best,
