There are many reasons Raj Soin College of Business students refer to Rosemary Ramsey, Ph.D., as “mom.”

Like a mother, Ramsey demands that students work diligently toward reaching their potential. And, like a mother, she also provides encouragement and a listening ear when needed.

“She is genuine and she makes everyone, including myself, step up and do it right,” said Associate Dean and Marketing Department Chair James Munch, Ph.D. “In the context of teaching, you might call it ‘tough love.’”

Ramsey, a Wright State graduate, was interim dean at the Cleveland State University College of Business Administration before returning to Raider Country in 2003. Her responsibilities, in addition to teaching, have included graduate programs, international business programs, internal and external communications and marketing, and organizing department activities.

Wright State’s 2010 Outstanding Marketing Professor Award winner has authored or co-authored more than 30 journal articles and refereed more than 35 conference papers. But, above all, she is a teacher.

“Dr. Ramsey reaches her students with the perfect blend of education and real-life experiences,” said Andy Neumeier, who earned degrees from Wright State in 2007 and 2010. “She can make the work fun, interesting, and educational, all at the same time.”

“Professor Ramsey is that one teacher who makes all of us who choose the profession in higher education take so much pride,” said Joanne Li, Ph.D., dean of the Raj Soin College of Business.
