ph.d from ISU in biochemistry and biophysics in 1968.also b.s, from isu.
my last job was in my own consultiung company..b4 that i was vice president of operations for a food group in dallas, texas.responsibilities included operations of14 plants worldwide. we sold the company and i followed up in my own consulting business for a period of 2 years. i had a stroke 9 1/2 years ago at age 58. i have been disabled due to the stroke. i have been doing a couple of consulting projects in mexico -one setting up a food group in mexico and the other setting up a manufacturing group in the U.S. for private label manufacturing in the food area. the food company in mexico is doing very well.
I got a MCRP and went into planning and have since supplemented that with an MPA. I had to have the first to even get into the field since my undergrad was unrelated. I don't see myself leaving the field any time soon.
I am also a PhD student in business (logistics). Your immobility comment is a red flag. You won't be able to get all of your degrees from ISU and then stay there to do research and teaching. You will need to move at some point if the professor route is one that you want to pursue. You should also consider that research should be your passion as that is the priority over teaching at major universities.
I also had several years of managerial experience before getting into the program and will be finishing shortly. The experience is helpful and some programs even require it.
I would also be open to offering additional insight if you want to PM me. Best of luck to you!
I am immobile now, not after I have the degree. I can't uproot my husband for getting the degree, but for getting the job = MOVING!!!! :)
