Areas of Expertise
Since 2014, professor Rebecca Bragg has taught graduate and undergraduate students, on campus and online, at colleges and universities across the Northeast, including Eastern Nazarene College, Holyoke Community College, Marian Court College, Husson University and Unity College. She was drawn to the University of Maine at Machias because of its strong emphasis on teaching and small student-to-faculty ratios. Since joining the faculty in 2017, she has enjoyed cultivating supportive ties with community partners and participating in economic development initiatives.
For Bragg, Maine is a “home away from home,” since her parents are from Aroostook and Knox Counties. She grew up in an entrepreneurial family, working alongside her parents who were owner-managers/franchise developers of a commercial cleaning business with territories in western Massachusetts and northern Connecticut. The business program’s niche focus on small business management and entrepreneurship drew her to UMM. She appreciated that, like in much of Maine, small businesses are the lifeblood of Washington County, and Machias provides a strong ecosystem of support for entrepreneurs.
At UMM, Bragg’s teaching interests include an array of subjects including marketing, business communications, international business, organizational behavior, managerial decision making, human resources management, business ethics and social responsibility, business law and individual income tax. She facilitates the business program’s Internship & Seminar course, overseeing semester-long field placements with local businesses, non-profit organizations, and government agencies.
Bragg holds a Juris Doctor degree from Western New England University School of Law, and Masters of Laws in Closely-Held Businesses and Elder Law & Estate Planning. She earned her Master of Business Administration from Sawyer Business School at Suffolk University, and Graduate Certificate in Higher Education Administration from Bay Path University. As an undergraduate, she studied Political Science at Grove City College. She is a licensed attorney in the State of Connecticut and Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
