New director of CCU's MBA program is named

  John O. Lox  
John O. Lox has been named the first director of Coastal Carolina University's Master of Business Administration program.

The MBA program, which Coastal began offering in August 2006 through the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration, encompasses the disciplines of accounting, finance, economics, management and marketing. In addition to a general MBA, the program offers the option of an accounting concentration. A hallmark of the program is the opportunity to intern with a wide range of well-known local, national and global companies. Currently, there are 40 students enrolled in the MBA program. Further, senior level executives are recruited to serve as mentors for each MBA student.

Lox has extensive general management experience with international and domestic firms, including Sara Lee, Kraft-Nabisco and Unilever. His international consulting efforts led him to develop a successful market-based enterprise in Eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin Wall.

He began his career at Mississippi State University as an executive-in-residence, where he founded, developed and directed the successful International Business Academic program. He taught a number of international business courses, directed many study abroad and foreign exchange programs, and helped lead the university in globalizing efforts. He was named a Professor of Eminence at Mississippi State and frequently spoke at Society of Scholars meetings. Lox is a member of Phi Kappa Phi and Beta Gamma Sigma Honor societies, and he is a co-author of "The American Entrepreneur's Guide," a widely used college text.

Lox earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Virginia, and a master's degree in IT from MSU. He lives in Myrtle Beach.
