Megan Ball

This is Mrs. Ball’s (she/her/hers) 17th year in higher education. Before joining Northeastern, Mrs. Ball was with Marymount University in Arlington, Virginia where she taught Introduction to Business & Marketing, Retailing Marketing, Hospitality Management, Strategic Hospitality Management, and Marketing Management.

Her professional knowledge spans over 20+ years in areas such as sales and marketing management, event planning, hospitality management, and retail management with companies including The Ritz-Carlton, Accenture, and Neiman Marcus.  She is a proud graduate of both The Johns Hopkins University (Master of Science in Marketing) and Marymount University (Bachelor of Arts in Fashion Design.) When she’s not teaching, the diehard Boston Bruins fan enjoys spending time with her family, cooking, and traveling.
