Allison Anthony has joined the Poole College of Management as a member of the Master of Management Program team. She will serve as the assistant director of the Global Luxury and Management (GLAM) program and her office is located in Nelson Hall 1303.
Anthony has over 15 years of higher education experience, 10 of those years serving as the admissions director for Meredith College’s MBA program as well as serving a similar role with Campbell University. Her most recent role was with the UNC Kenan-Flagler Business School where she served as associate director of admissions and student recruitment for their MBA Program.
As the assistant director for the GLAM program, Anthony will be responsible for recruiting the next incoming class of GLAM students. This includes holding information sessions, hosting webinars, alumni panels and attending career fairs, coordinating GLAM activities, assisting with social media strategy, career coaching for GLAM students and alumni, coordinating professional development activities, and overall general support of the program.
Anthony received a master of science in community counseling from Western Carolina University in 1997. She also earned an associate of arts from Peace College and a bachelor of science in psychology from Appalachian State University.
Outside of Poole College, the Raleigh native enjoys hiking, reading, and spending time with her dog, Daisy. Her daughter has also recently started her freshman year at the University of North Carolina-Greensboro.
“Allison’s role is integral to the success of the GLAM program and is multifaceted with responsibilities ranging from recruiting and admissions to administrative program management and coordination of program activities to career management and luxury industry outreach,” said Kristie McGowan, director of the GLAM program. “The GLAM program has experienced significant growth in interest, applications, and diversity and I look forward to Allison continuing to help us build upon this trajectory. As a highly academic and experiential program that directly aligns with NC State’s Think and Do mentality, Allison will directly support PCOM and GLAM’s strategic goals.”
