Dr. Julita Harber
Dr. Haber uses innovative pedagogical methods. She developed a fitness-integrated learning (FIL) approach that engages students in physical exercise when learning in class. In the spring of 2018, her FIL class was the first of its kind on a college campus in the United States, which brought national attention to Fordham in the mainstream media.
Julita Haber, Ph.D. is the director of the full time MBA program and a clinical assistant professor in the communications and media management area at the Gabelli School of Business, Fordham University.
Her research interests include impressions of competency and competency pressures. She studies the adverse effects of organizational norms to appear competent at work. Dr. Haber coined a new research area of “competency labor” in management. She is a recipient of two awards for best reviewer as well as the best paper award in the teaching innovation and management education track in a recent Southern Management Association conference.

In the spring of 2018, her FIL class was the first of its kind on a college campus in the United States, which brought national attention to Fordham with coverage by ABC News, Good Morning America, Poets & Quants, and MTVU.
With a goal to further enhance learning, she also actively uses virtual reality and augmented reality (AV/VR) to increase student engagement and infuse emergent technology into a classroom and the MBA program. These efforts were featured in March 2019 by US News.
Dr. Haber leverages 20 years of business and management-consulting experience with Deloitte & PwC prior to her academic career. Her degrees come from New York University, Boston University, Ben Gurion University in Israel and TUI University.
Lastly, growing up in Europe, working and studying in the Middle East, living in the United States, and traveling around the world to 50 countries have enabled Dr. Haber to develop a culturally diversified perspective that heightens her students’ global exposure.
