RT Good with student

Dr. Ralph Tilden ‘’RT’’ Good joined Lynn University this year as dean of the College of Business and Management, Lynn’s largest and most international program.

Good, who is on a mission to take the College of Business and Management from good to great, says he wants to give the college and its achievements a voice.

“I want to show the type of business acumen students obtain while at Lynn,” said Good. “These real-life examples are why we exist and preserve the legacy of those who have invested in the university.”

Good spent the past four years as associate dean and professor of the Byrd School of Business at Shenandoah University in Virginia. He served the university for more than 20 years as associate dean of student affairs, dean of the School of Continuing Education and the Northern Virginia Campus, dean of global education and special initiatives, and associate professor of management.

Additionally, Good held positions as associate cluster coordinator at Nova Southeastern University, managing partner of a hotel management firm, and chief business and human resource officer of a land development and construction firm.

Good holds a Bachelor of General Studies from Virginia Commonwealth University, a Master of Business Administration from University of Mary Washington, a Doctor of Education from Nova Southeastern University and a post-doctorate from University of Florida.

“The ultimate goal is to bring my experience to the conversation of what’s happening at Lynn, in higher education and in the local community. We want to position the college to be on the cutting edge of higher education, leveraging its integrity and character to meet today’s business needs,” Good said.
