Joan McBee is a Professor and Chair for the School of Business.  In addition she coordinates the Bachelor of Applied Science in Management program and the Certificate in Interactive Marketing and e-Commerce. Joan also teaches marketing and business policy courses for the School of Business.

Joan joined the University in 1997 to implement a program for working adults to return to college and finish their degree. The Business Degree Completion Program continues to be a growing program offering students opportunities to take classes at night and on weekends in Medford or over the Internet.  Joan also developed and launched a new degree program, the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in Management.  The BAS allows individuals who have earned an AAS degree in a technical field to complete a bachelor's degree.

Before coming to SOU, Joan taught for four years at Southwestern Oregon Community College in Coos Bay. Prior to teaching, Joan sold mutual funds and real estate investments, financed non-conventional and commercial loans, and worked as a title officer for an escrow company.

Joan's hobbies include running, bass fishing, and collecting antique fishing lures.
