Dean of Business School, Staffs Programs and Performs Faculty Evaluations

Dr. Marc Getty is the dean of the school of business at Salem University. In this position, he leads all aspects of the school’s standing with the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) as well as oversees staffing and faculty evaluations for the university’s associate’s, bachelor’s and graduate degree business programs.

“I began my career as a financial planner working for a large securities firm, then entered the fast-paced telecommunications and information technology field as network engineer and manager,” he said. Most recently he worked in the education field as a business and information technology instructor. He’s been a dean at Salem University for six years.

Getty is proud to have led his school earn its initial ACBSP accreditation. “It’s been a highlight of my career,” he added. This accomplishment was achieved by following his mantra to just keep moving forward—no matter what happens.

He chose to attend Argosy University, Chicago because of the school’s business program that was consistent with his goals to become a scholar and practitioner. Getty admits that balancing career, school, and family was challenging, but found the faculty to be supportive and helpful as he worked toward his Doctor of Business Administration in Business Administration, earned in 2013.

Getty credits his degree with helping him to pursue his passion—to become a dean and work in higher education. In addition to his work, he is a member of ACBSP, an education committee member of the Harrison County Chamber of Commerce, and an adviser for the Salem University Business BizBuzz Hub.
