Each month, we'll introduce you to an interesting member of the Professional Staff Senate. This month's featured member is Rebecca Ott, Assistant Director of Recruitment for Executive and Professional MBA Programs in the School of Management.
I have worked at UB for a little over seven years, serving as an Admissions Counselor in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and most currently as the Assistant Director of Recruitment for Executive and Professional MBA programs in the School of Management.
I most enjoy assisting those interested in pursuing their MBA to further their careers, through conversations and relationship building. My true passion is working with students and helping them achieve their educational and career goals.
I have spent the majority of my career working with prospective undergraduate students. The transition to working with a new population of professional andexecutive students is a new experience, but one in which I am excited to experience and excel.
One of my biggest achievements at UB is the upward progression and growth in my career. In addition, I have been able to spotlight the University at Buffalo during my involvement with and expanding leadership positions in the State University of New York College Admissions Professionals Organization (SUNYCAP).
For many years, the Executive and Professional MBA programs used to be housed under the Center for Executive Development department within the School of Management. We were separate from other degree programs and worked more closely with non-credit bearing programs and executive development based programs. However, in May 2019, there was a reorganization in the school and the Executive and Professional MBA programs separated from the Center for Executive Development and are now are housed with the rest of the degree programs.

I enjoy golfing, skiing, cheering on the Buffalo Bills, and league nights at Hatchets and Hops!
My favorite meal to prepare is rosemary chicken salad with avocado and bacon.
The Swiss Alps to ski!
