My name is Jim Krejci, currently the Chair of the Business Administration and Marketing department and a Professor in the College of Business at Lewis University. I have taught for 30 years at Lewis University, most of them as an adjunct while working as either Vice President of Operations or Vice President of Quality in Industry. I am a corporate certified Black Belt in Six Sigma

I have over forty years of experience in manufacturing with several companies, primarily in the areas of plant operations, quality control, metrology, supply chain management and operations. I started working while I was still in college sweeping the floor and rose through the ranks of management. I have served on several committees writing standards in the field of metrology.

I earned my DBA from Nova Southeastern in 1993 and completed an MBA from St. Xavier University in 1988. I can relate to students who are working and going to school at the same time since I managed to start my full time working career in 1973 and didn’t miss a semester of school until I received my doctorate 20 years later.
