“I look forward to engaging with alumni, the Greater Louisville business community and international partners to enhance the Rubel School of Business’ profile, in the region and beyond."

On Thursday, April 15, Treasurer Ball will speak about her childhood experience as an entrepreneur and how this experience built her resilience for the career path she has taken, as well as in her current role as a second-term State Treasurer for Kentucky. She will speak about stories of resilience, which she believes is as an important trait, especially for those women who look toward roles in leadership. Register for this event here.

And last month a group of panelists including Johnetta Roberts with Village at West Jefferson, Pastor Jamesetta Ferguson with Molo Village CDC, Raymond Smith with Park Community Credit Union, and Butch Mosby with Sponsor 4 Success joined us for a discussion, “Empowering the Racial Wealth Gap through Increasing Real Estate Development in West End Louisville.”

“I look forward to engaging with alumni, the Greater Louisville business community and international partners to enhance the Rubel School of Business’ profile, in the region and beyond,” Dr. Munshi said in her introductory remarks as Dean of the Rubel School of Business.

Dr. Munshi assumed her duties as the new dean of the W. Fielding Rubel School of Business on August 1. She came from Saint Mary’s College of California (SMC), where she served as associate dean of Graduate Business in the School of Economics and Business Administration.

Dr. Munshi brings nearly 20 years of experience as a teacher-scholar in the field of Strategy and Innovation in the UK, Europe, China and USA to Bellarmine, along with significant practical experience as a strategy consultant. At SMC, she has built new degree programs and developed certificate programs for San Francisco Bay Area companies; re-invigorated existing legacy programs, such as the flagship EMBA program; and increased enrollment in graduate business programs.

Due to the pandemic, all events will be held virtually. For more information visit our Rubel School events page.
