Narda Quigley is an associate professor of Management and Chair of the Department of Management and Operations here at VSB. After graduating with an undergraduate degree in economics and international relations from the University of Pennsylvania, she attained her Ph.D. in organizational behavior from the Robert H.

Narda is happy to talk with students as they explore their own career possibilities and can share the details of her own academic journey. She can also provide more specific information about what academic careers are like, the doctoral program search and application process, and what it is like to transition from being an undergraduate to a doctoral student (from academic, social, and financial perspectives). She is also happy to talk about issues of work-life-family balance across different kinds of careers.
