2/11/2019

Dr. Sendziol
We are excited to announce that Dr. Dana Sendziol has accepted the position of COB undergraduate programs chair, beginning in January 2019. Dr. Sendziol replaces both Professor Craig Lusthoff, as he steps down after a six-year term as undergraduate traditional program chair and Professor Maria Battistoni, who has served as the undergraduate online program chair for the past two years. We thank them both for their service. Dr. Sendziol joined the College in August 2018 and is looking forward to helping engage student success outcomes in this new role.
Prof. Dellegrazie
Professor Elisabeth Dellegrazie has been serving the college as the chair of international academic programs since early in the fall 2018 semester. In her more than 10 years as an assistant professor of marketing, she has served as director of COB international development, MBA program chair, and director of COB marketing. Through her roles she has traveled internationally for the College, including locations in Costa Rica, China, France, and England. Dellegrazie is in the dissertation stage of her PhD and will be traveling to China in the fall to conduct scholarly research.
Ms. Schlie
In September 2018, Ms. Cathy Schlie accepted the position of marketing, communication, and events manager for the College of Business. Schlie joined the COB in January of 2012 as the administrative assistant to the Dean, later advancing into the position of college coordinator in June of 2015. Schlie earned her MA in Higher Education Leadership from CUC in December 2018. You can find her in her new office in Brohm Hall.
Ms. Kvasnicka
In November 2018, the COB welcomed Ms. Susan Kvasnicka as the administrative assistant to the Office of the Dean. Kvasnicka has extensive experience managing a family-owned construction business and will be a true asset in helping with the daily operations of the College of Business. She holds a BA in Business Administration and French, as well as an MBA from Lake Forest Graduate School of Management. Adding to her expertise, she also studied International Business at Wolfson College of Cambridge University, in Cambridge, England. She is located at the hallway desk on the second floor of Brohm Hall.
Ms. Tang
In January 2019, Ms. Yue Tang joined the College of Business as the college’s first doctoral (DBA) research assistant. She is a student in the DBA program and is passionate about academic research focusing on the internationalization of higher education and international academic partnerships. Tang completed her bachelor’s degree as one of the first group of students in the 3 + 1 program between Concordia-Chicago and the Hebei University of Economics and Business (HUEB). While pursuing her MBA within the College, she worked in CISS and the office of Graduate Admission and Student Services. She also worked as a volunteer on projects for the College of Business. These opportunities offered her the lens through which to examine how curriculum is internationalized and how international programs impact the enrolled students’ academic experience. In her time at CUC she competed in CougarTank in Spring 2018 and presented at the 2nd CUC-HUEB Symposium in October 2018.
