VIRGINIA BEACH, VA (June 14, 2021) – The Regent University School of Business & Leadership was recently featured on the Ask the Expert radio show at AM 790 WNIS in Norfolk, Virginia. Dr. Doris Gomez and Dr. Greg Stone discussed a vitally important topic: “Why pursuing a business education makes perfect sense in a hyper-competitive market.”

Mayor of Virginia Beach and Regent alum, Bobby Dyer, joined the radio show by phone. “Regent gave me a lot of the essential skills I needed, especially in communication, persuasion, motivating people, and understanding how businesses work,” said Dyer. “It’s really been invaluable to me in my career in politics, and the privilege of serving as mayor.”
