Director, MBA Programs
Steve Farkas assumed directorship of the MBA Programs office in January 2013, after serving as the Director of the Peter M. and Paula Green Johnson Career Center from 2008-2012.
As the Director of the MBA program, Farkas focuses on industry outreach efforts to identify strategic opportunities for MBA’s to gain access to business leaders and industry best practices, and on partnering with faculty to ensure a highly integrated, industry relevant curriculum. Increased program marketing and candidate recruitment are also priorities, as Farkas believes UW’s MBA Program has competitive strengths, especially in energy, that create distinct advantages over other programs.
Farkas, who received his MBA from the University of Wyoming and BA from the University of Florida, began his business career 22 years ago in the specialty retail industry where he held various leadership positions during a time of active mergers, acquisitions and several private equity transactions. Prior to his College of Business arrival, Farkas served as Chief Operating Officer for BTWW Retail/Corral West Ranchwear.
