Alumnae honored as Women to Watch and Industry Leaders

Four University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business alumnae were recently honored as Women to Watch or Industry Leaders by the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. Women to Watch include 25 leaders just beginning to make their mark in start-up companies or established organizations. The journal’s 25 Industry Leaders are women at the forefront of their industries — key players who have risen to the top of their field and innovators who are leading trends and breaking new ground.

OCB alumni were selected from more than 200 nominees in early 2008. Award winners were named in the July 11, 2008, issue of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal and honored at an awards luncheon at the Hilton Minneapolis on July 16, 2008.
