From the Director of Executive Coaching
Happy New Year! I would like to begin this year by congratulating the very first graduates of our masters program. Congratulations to Lorraine Andrews, Nathalie Centinaro, Glenn McKee, Sarah Skinner, Kristine Whetstine, and Ross Woodstock. These fantastic students have received a Master of Science in Management and Administrative Sciences with a concentration in Organizational Behavior and Coaching from the Jindal School of Management at the University of Texas at Dallas. Our School of Management is rated among the top 40 business schools in the US. Their completion of the MS degree is an accomplishment to be proud of; and this is just the first group of many more students who will complete the master’s program over the next year.
Speaking of masters programs, our partnership with UT Southwestern Medical Center is expanding. Beginning in January of 2013 we will be offering our MS degree to a cohort of students from UTSW and Texas Health Resources. Texas Health Resources has more than 20,000 employees working in 24 acute-care and short-stay hospitals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. This educational collaboration is reflective of the synergy of efforts that is occurring in the world of healthcare and speaks well of our reputation in the field.
That’s it for now.
Best regards this New Year,
Robert Hicks, Ph.D.
Director, Executive and Professional Coaching
