Dr. Kelly M. Kilcrease is an Associate Professor of Business with seventeen years of teaching experience on the collegiate level. Dr. Kilcrease has a constant desire to see students apply what they learn by using the classroom as a simulator to the real business world. He believes that it is not enough that students understand how a theory works, they must experience its ramifications and changes within the organization once it is applied.
Dr. Kilcrease earned his BA from the University of South Florida and an MBA from Tampa College. He earned his Ph.D. in Management with an emphasis in Productivity from The Union Institute and University. His published dissertation focused on the productive impact the microcomputer has on outside sales forces. Since then he has presented and published in a variety of business areas including business history, teaching effectiveness, tools for non-profit business, and the relationship between the liberal arts and management.
