A new regional chancellor has been named for the WKU Elizabethtown/Fort Knox campus. 

University officials have announced Dr. Evelyn Ellis has been chosen from among four finalists. Ellis joins the WKU family from Seoul, South Korea where she was the Education Operations Manager and Chief of Staff for the U.S. Department of Defense Dependents School there. 

Pending approval of the Board of Regents, Dr. Ellis will begin at WKU Elizabethtown/Fort Knox on July 28.

Starting this fall, WKU’s Elizabethtown campus will offer a Masters of Business Administration. Students will be able to choose from three tracks:  the full-time, online, or professional MBA.

The Professional MBA was created to meet the scheduling needs of busy adults by meeting on alternate Saturdays for two years. The program is open to professionals, business owners, and managers with five years of experience. 

WKU’s PMBA program recently placed in the top 5 percent nationally on the standardized exit exam for graduates of MBA programs. 

“This top ranking proves that we have an excellent faculty, an applied curriculum, and a cohort program that works,” said Bob Hatfield, associate dean of WKU's Gordon Ford College of Business.
