Distinguished Professor Jaime Alonso Gomez to Visit UE

Posted: Thursday, March 21, 2013

The University of Evansville’s Office of Academic Affairs invites the community to a presentation by Jaime Gomez, PhD, distinguished professor of international business at the University of San Diego and professor of international strategy and management at the Instituto Tecnologico de Monterrey in Mexico.

Gomez will present “Building a Sustainable World through Innovation Driven Social Enterprise” at 4 p.m. Monday, March 25 in Smythe Lecture Hall (Room 170, Schroeder School of Business Building). The lecture is free and open to the public.

With a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering, a master’s in applied systems design, and a PhD in applied economics and managerial science, Gomez has interests that extend across multiple disciplines. His work experience has been international in character and global in impact. He believes in education in its most comprehensive interpretation – a foundation for societal development through which students become socially responsible individuals instilled with a moral obligation to others and to society as a whole. His work and his values epitomize the concept of the social entrepreneur.

For more information, please contact the Office of Academic Affairs at 812-488-1178.

The Institute for Global Enterprise is also supporting Gomez’s visit to the University of Evansville. On Tuesday, March 26 from 8 a.m.-1:30 p.m., Gomez will lead an Executive Education Forum on “Strategies for Global Competitiveness,” open to the local business community. For more information and to register, please contact Katie Ciccarelli, Institute for Global Enterprise director of program development, at kc204@evansville.edu or visit http://evansville.edu/execedforum.

This program was made possible in part by the generous support of the Lilly Endowment.
