Michelle Beauchamp never pictured herself becoming an instructor. Marketing was her specialty. However, Beauchamp said the guidance, support and personal attention she received from Nicholls State University management and marketing faculty members inspired her to pursue a career in academia.
After earning her bachelorâ€™s degree in 2000, Beauchamp began working on her MBA. She served as a graduate research assistant and then adjunct instructor before graduating in 2002.
Beauchamp is currently pursuing her doctoral degree at Mississippi State University, where she was recently promoted to marketing instructor. Prior to July 2006, she served as a teaching and research assistant at MSU.
â€œNicholls provided me with a strong foundation upon which I have been able to build as I continue my academic career,â€ Beauchamp says. â€œNo matter where my career takes me, I am proud to call Nicholls State University my home.â€
