USD Business Leadership Program Sends Forth 17

The newest class of global business leaders was to receive their master’s degrees from the University of San Diego School of Business Administration in a ceremony at the university’s Manchester Executive Conference Center Auditorium at 2 p.m. on July 27.

The 17 graduates successfully completed the school’s 16-month Master of Science in global leadership program, which focuses on leadership, ethics, the global political environment and best business practices.

The program’s curriculum combines traditional classroom instruction with online learning techniques. Students unable to attend the program’s monthly classes can complete their education through distance and online learning means.

The graduating class has a large contingent of military personnel on active duty in the Navy as well as employees for corporations such as Qualcomm Inc., Booz Allen Hamilton and Sony Corp.

Eleven of the 12 military officers in the program have served in Iraq or Afghanistan. One graduate, pilot and Navy Lt. Ken Colman, also helped deliver food and supplies in the aftermath of the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia.

The program also includes graduates with international ties.

Vietnam native and Qualcomm employee Tramerica Le recently became a U.S. citizen and served on a delegation to help build business ties between the United States and her native country. She is among 10 women in the graduating class, which has the highest number of female graduates in the program’s history.

The graduation speaker is Jaime Alonso G & #243;mez, founding dean of the Graduate School of Business Administration and Leadership at the Tecnol & #243;gico de Monterrey in Monterrey, Mexico. He is also the national dean of the graduate schools in the Tecnol & #243;gico de Monterrey school system. Tecnol & #243;gico de Monterrey and USD have a partnership for a dual-degree master’s program in international business and faculty exchanges.

The USD program has graduated more than 300 students since 1999. The U.S. Navy honored the program within its graduate education voucher system and provides scholarships for some of its officers each year to pursue an education in the program. Students in the private sector often receive scholarship aid from employers as well.
