Faculty Spotlight

Professory McEvoy

What courses do you teach at UConn Stamford?
I teach the subjects that I have experienced in the business world- marketing, advertising and sales. Specifically, I currently teach the undergraduate courses Introduction to Marketing, Consumer Behavior, Professional Selling and Integrated Marketing Communications, (Advertising, Public Relations and Corporate Communications).

I also teach MBA Marketing Management and Integrated Marketing Communications, and have taught MBA Consulting Services, Consumer Behavior, Executive MBA Marketing Management, and an Executive Education course in Supply Chain Management.

Why did you decide to enter your field?
Marketing is so real. We discuss something in class and the next day you see it in the real world-advertising, sales, promotions, pricing, new products-it’s all there, and we all participate in the marketing process. My very first job after college graduation was as an insurance claim adjuster which I quickly discovered was not right for me. This led to an MBA in Marketing from Boston College, and marketing positions, two tech startups, and consulting.

I discovered that after 20 years in professional practice, I enjoyed teaching the subjects even more than actually doing it myself. I started teaching at UConn Stamford, earned my PhD at NYU in Business Education, and joined UConn Stamford full time in 2004. A Marketing education is like training for real life, and teaching it is the life for me.

What are some resources on campus that you would consider to be most helpful to students?
Faculty, staff and each other. Faculty because we are here to support our students. College students should realize that faculty uses the squeaky wheel philosophy-the squeaky wheel gets the extra oil. The students that speak up, ask, appear, volunteer, show real interest get more focus. The more you give the more you get - just like life.

Staff members are also very important. So many times I have heard students tell me they didn't know something they wish they knew earlier because they did not ask a staff member a simple question. And, of course, students have each other. Who better to discuss ideas, concepts, debate conclusions with than peers? That's where the action is.

How would you describe the UConn Stamford community?
Diverse. Unique. Hard working. Lots of fun. UConn Stamford is known as having the most diverse study body within the UConn community. We have students representing every country of origin, background, language, religion (or none) and race you can think of from all over the world. Stamford is unique. Stamford also has a growing number of student clubs representing the diverse interests of our students.

Stamford students take it all in stride. And, we all have lots of fun together, too. I’ve hit baseballs with students. I’ve had cream pies thrown in my face. And don't forget the talent and fashion shows. Best of all, there's the pay-off: our students get good jobs when they graduate. At UConn Stamford you work hard and play hard. It is a fabulous place.
