Meet ... Katie Matt

Advisor, Faculty Member, Alumna When Katie Matt was a student in SUNY Poly’s accounting programs, she originally had her sights set on business. The experiences she has undergone, though, have made teaching others her business, and brought her right back to where she learned it all— the hallways of SUNY Poly.

Now using her experiences and knowledge to guide others along their path, Katie is right at home as a faculty member in the College of Business Management and its Advisement Center— a place for students to be able to go and have their questions heard during open office hours or with an adviser appointment. “I appreciate the reaction students have when a theory or topic resonates with them. When they understand the information and can relate to how we would use the information in the real world. This is very rewarding.”
