Perhaps the biggest news is the announcement of the next Dean of the UT College of Business and Innovation, Dr. Anne Balazs, who will join our beloved college from Eastern Michigan University - - also a Mid-American Conference school - - where she is interim dean of the College of Business. She is also very familiar with Toledo for a number of reasons, including being on the UT campus in the winter of 2014 as a fellow for the American Council on Education. Please join me in welcoming Dr. Balazs when she begins her new role at UT COBI on August 13. You can read more about her in this issue.
If you are seriously interested in advancing your own career or business, you can develop and enhance the skills that can help you COBI’s Executive MBA program. Class meetings on-campus are just once a month for 12 months. Through a variety of team projects you will develop key contacts that will last a lifetime. We only accept about 20 people in each cohort, and spaces are filling for the next cohort, which will begin this fall. Learn more on our website at http://www.utoledo.edu/business/graduate/emba.
And if you want to help COBI students - - and have some fun in the process - - please be sure to sign up now for the 20th Annual University of Toledo Business vs. Engineering Scholarship Golf Outing. It will be held on Saturday, Aug. 25 at Stone Oak Country Club. Our alumni are amazing supporters of our students, and the scholarships that are awarded as a result of this event are tremendously important to the student recipients.

Thank you to all for your support throughout the year. Enjoy your summer!
Inspire. Transform. Empower. Achieve.
