Sharon Lohman, B.B.A.
School of Business & Technology
What is your field of expertise, and what makes you interested in this field?
My degree is in Organization Management and this general education has helped me succeed in positions in health care, financial services and now in education. Organization leaders frequently need someone to handle the details of carrying out their plans and ensuring smooth operations. I have always found being that "someone" very rewarding.
Can you briefly introduce the academic program (or department) you are in to our prospective students?
The School of Business & Technology at St. Scholastica includes the departments of Management and Computer Information Systems with both undergraduate and graduate programs. Across all programs we develop leaders with strong professional skills who demonstrate ethical decision-making, a strong sense of social responsibility and global awareness.
What do you like best about St. Scholastica?
I was drawn to working at St. Scholastica because of its Benedictine Heritage. Having worked in a variety of business sectors over the past 30 years I knew that an organization with values that include hospitality, respect and stewardship would be a good fit for me. St. Scholastica also encourages volunteering which is something that I find very rewarding.
What's your advice for prospective students?
As someone who earned a bachelor's degree in my 30's through an evening program while working full-time, my advice to traditional age students is to embrace this opportunity for higher education at an early age! Get all you can out of this time in college because life moves on with all of its complications and busyness. For those individuals returning to school in a graduate program, don't hesitate to let me know how I can help you!
