Scott Helm, Ph.D., has been newly appointed the director of the Henry W. Bloch School of Management’s Executive MBA program.
In addition to his roles as director of the Executive Master of Public Administration (E.M.P.A.), associate teaching professor of Public Affairs and associate director of the Midwest Center for Nonprofit Leadership, Helm will oversee Bloch’s Executive MBA initiatives.
Helm received a B.A. in economics from Washington College, an M.P.A. with a concentration in nonprofit management from the Bloch School and an Interdisciplinary Ph.D. in public administration and economics from University of Missouri-Kansas City. In addition to his academic pursuits, Helm has served as a consultant to some of Kansas City’s most impactful organizations in Health, Nonprofit and Business, including the Kauffman Foundation, Samuel U. Rodgers, and most recently the Kansas City Royals (for their Urban Youth Academy).
“We’re excited that Scott will be taking on this leadership role for the EMBA program,” says Bloch School Dean Brian Klaas. “His industry experience, his understanding of how to build and deliver high quality programs for executives, and his talents as an instructor make him the perfect fit to lead this premier program.”
