Ernst & Young Leadership Suites
College Dedicates Ernst & Young Leadership Suites

The UTSA College of Business dedicated the Ernst & Young Leadership Suites in the Business Building during ceremonies October 19. The Ernst & Young Leadership Suites were established to provide first-class interview and professional development space for business students and employers. More than $500,000 was raised to support the build out of the suites, student professional development programs and scholarship assistance in support of this endeavor. More than 25 donors contributed to this endeavor including corporations, alumni and current business students.

Mentoring class
Leaders Share the Realities of Business with UTSA Students

The College of Business has launched a new mentoring program as part of an academic class offered by the Department of Management. The inaugural mentorship class, taught by Richard Sibbernsen, a retired senior vice president of human resources for AT&T, consisted of a blend of lectures, peer learning and problem solving. “UTSA provides a good toolkit of management skills for our students,” said Sibbernsen. “But, this class puts those skills to practice for our students. Mentoring relationships offer great learning situations to deepen and broaden understanding from senior leaders.”

Nancy and Andrew Ozuna
Giving Back to their Alma Mater

Alumni Nancy, '93, MPA '95 and Andrew Ozuna, '91 are passionate about many things in their lives--their family, their careers and their love of UTSA. The Ozunas met at Jefferson High School and made UTSA their first choice when they went onto college. Continuing to call San Antonio home, Andrew is a senior vice president for Regions Bank, and Nancy is a partner at public accounting firm BKD, LLP.

Executive MBA Leadership Class
Meeting the Leadership Challenge

How do you train the next generation of leaders? What will future business leaders need to know, do, be? These questions and many others form the basis for the academic journey taken by Robert Lengel, associate dean of executive education and director of the college's Center for Professional Excellence (CPE). The CPE is looking at the leadership development challenge with new eyes and has become the home for transformational leadership experiences. And, the most visible program where these concepts are explored is the college's Executive MBA program.
