This issue of Portfolio highlights the Global Initiatives at Leeds which are taking experiential learning to new heights—including the Andes, the Great Wall of China, and the skyscrapers of Hong Kong. These transformational experiences not only provide students with firsthand knowledge of different markets, cultures and geopolitical systems, but also instill a global mindset that they bring with them back to Leeds.Read more »
Spring 2013 Portfolio for the Leeds School of Business

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 »
Fall 2012 Portfolio for the Leeds School of Business

Portfolio Fall 2012

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 09:57

More than a century ago on the Western frontier, Colorado was influencing management and leadership practices on a campus that, at the time, was only 30 years old. The University of Colorado Boulder became home to a business school in 1906, which makes Leeds the eighth oldest business school in the nation. Leeds continues its long-standing tradition of defining business education. This year we launched a plan to focus on areas with the highest ROI for our school, individuals and a broad range of enterprises. Students, faculty and staff are now taking that plan and looking at how we can... Read more »

Portfolio Spring 2012

This edition of Portfolio is a global one. Laser mazes in India, locker keys in Egypt, and logistics for the Olympics all have a Leeds graduate at the core. Students from many countries who come to the Leeds School enrich our student body and take away knowledge that creates great careers, creates value, and builds the global connectivity of the Leeds School. The global agility and impact of our graduates is a great story. Their range is tremendous—not only across geographies but across industries. Our alumni transform and reshape industries around the world: See how SmartWool changed the way wool... Read more »

Portfolio Fall 2011

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 09:54

Philanthropy Issue In the pages which follow, you will see a theme of philanthropy, motivated in part by a wonderful anniversary we have this fall. We are so fortunate to be blessed with such wonderful alumni who can help us as we drive this school to greater success. It was 10 years ago that the business school at the University of Colorado Boulder received the gift that would forever transform the school. In 2001, the Leeds family invested in a philanthropic donation that resulted in the school’s new name, the Leeds School of Business and made it the only named... Read more »

You will find that a common theme connects these alumni stories—in each case, a great Leeds School graduate is making a difference. Not surprisingly, each is passionate and driven in their particular endeavor. Each is committed to making their community a better, healthier place. Each is innovating, and impacting our world.Read more »

Portfolio Fall 2010

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 09:49

Welcome to the Fall 2010 Portfolio, our magazine for alumni and friends of the Leeds School. Thematically, this edition focuses on our alumni and friends working, innovating, and creating in and with technology. You will hear a lot about Boulder in this edition, in part, because of its status as the No.1 U.S. city for tech startups according to BusinessWeek and other national publications, and, of course, because many of our alumni choose to stay in Boulder and the surrounding region upon graduation. However, as you will see, many of our alumni are geographically dispersed and in occupations inhabiting a... Read more »

Fall 2009 Portfolio for the Leeds School of Business

Portfolio Fall 2009

Mon, 10/20/2014 - 09:41

Sustainability is woven within every aspect of our lives and there is nothing that it doesn’t touch. Leeds alumni are using business skills to solve real world problems: energy distribution, poverty, and environmental issues. For skeptics who view all business people as self-serving, I hope the stories we are sharing in our Portfolio magazine would help reshape that perception. We wanted our fall magazine to showcase our alumni and corporate partners who have made it their business to help the needy, benefit the community, address climate change, or in general contribute to the greater good. Some we profiled were definitely... Read more »
