Max Pitt, MBA, is associate professor of business at Graceland University’s C.H. Sandage School of Business where he teaches courses in Agricultural Business and Business Administration.
Pitt earned a Bachelor of Science in Agri-Business, Business Administration and Economics through Graceland and Master’s in Business Administration through the University of Texas.
His professional objective is to “apply” experience in education, leadership, banking, business and service to create whole persons, to develop ethical organizations and to build healthy communities. This commitment to applying his experience is rooted in Pitt’s education at Graceland. He pursued an MBA with the goal to return and teach at this institution of higher learning. Pitt put the academic theories into practice in banking and community service with a desire to someday put the “practice” into the academic theory in the classroom.
“I value transformational education. In a balanced environment of concern and discipline, students develop confidence, wholeness, knowledge and ethical resolve into wisdom. This transformational, educational experience creates new potential for the student to live with deeper purpose and greater productivity.”
According to Pitt, the individual’s wholeness, purpose and productivity create success for them and their families. The informed, whole person can organize and associate with others to maintain ethical standards of fairness, respect and justice for others. The resulting relationships can develop into effective, healthy communities.
Pitt challenges himself to be an effective steward of the talents and experiences which are his responsibility to share and apply.
