Tyson, Robert

Program: Professional Online MBA
Previous Education: BPS, Business Administration and Management, Excelsior College

Robert is a second-year Professional Online MBA student concentrating in Entrepreneurship.  He holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification and has found it to be valuable while working in Program Management and Business Development for an SDVOSB Defense Contractor in Southern Pines, NC.  He now seeks to further expand his portfolio by serving as a leader in technology and innovation management. 

After retiring from the US Army Special Forces in 2017, having spent more than 36 months deployed to combat, he sought to continue challenging himself with opportunities in business.  His academic curiosity and thirst for knowledge have replaced tactical military objectives and driven him toward his current goals.

Robert is married to Gretchen Tyson and they have three delightful daughters together: Heather, Summer, and Ella.  They are an outdoor family and supportive of Robert’s passion for hunting in his spare time during the winter months.
