Leeds' Assistant Professor Stefanie Johnson Quoted on Yahoo Style

Uber France's 'Incredibly Hot Chick' Promotion Is Sexist and Destructive Lauren Tuck Assistant EditorOctober 22, 2014 Article from https://www.yahoo.com/style/uber-avions-de-chasse-sexism-100689648463.html Using an attractive woman to promote a product is an age-old advertising tactic that is employed time and time again. The strategy obviously works — otherwise the modeling industry wouldn’t be as lucrative as it is — so it’s no wonder why good-looking women front so many campaigns.

Portfolio Spring 2013

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 10:00

The challenge for Leeds—as well as other great schools—is to develop graduates who are capable of formulating strategic ideas and turning those ideas into action. They must also come equipped with skills ranging from presentation experience to computer proficiency. That’s what we now deliberately target as part of the Leeds approach – something we call the “Whole Student.” It still begins in the classroom but with a new look and a much more intentional drive. As we announced last fall, Leeds is revolutionizing its approach to the core curriculum, providing students the most relevant educational environment for the new innovation... Read more »

The University of Colorado Boulder became home to a business school in 1906, which makes Leeds the eighth oldest business school in the nation.

Students, faculty and staff are now taking that plan and looking at how we can... Read more »
