The East Bay Women in Business Roundtable is proud to present our 2012 Speaker Series "Women Defining East Bay's Future" with a special presentation from CSU East Bay's Teresa (Terri) Swartz, dean of the College of Business and Economics.
Summary: ''The Transformative Power of Education"
Dr. Swartz will draw on her substantial experience as an instructor and university administrator to discuss the transformative power of education and how education can impact the development of business leaders and the businesses they run. She has a B.S. and M.B.A. from Clarion University and a Ph.D. from Ohio State University. Dr. Swartz was named dean of the College of Business and Economics at California State University, East Bay in December 2007. She spent 11 years on the faculty of Arizona State University where, among other positions, she was director of research for the Center for Service Leadership.
Just prior to joining CSU East Bay, Dr. Swartz was a professor for 16 years at the Orfalea College of Business at California State University, San Luis Obispo. She has worked on marketing research projects in southern Africa, the Middle East and Europe, in addition to the United States.
Dr. Swartz’s expertise and insight into how education is shaping business leaders, in particular, businesswomen, promises to make this event enlightening. Her vision and leadership has resulted in the selection of CSU East Bay's College of Business and Economics, as one of the best business schools in the United States by the Princeton Review for the sixth consecutive year.
Dr. Swartz’s recent accolades also includes that she has been named, by the San Francisco Business Times, one of the Bay Area’s Most Influential Women for the past two years.
