New Web Page Features Bios of Best in their Field Thinkers

Dr. Mary Jo Hatch, one of the field's leading organizational theorists, is a distinguished
visiting scholar with the Center for Values-Driven Leadership's Ph.D./D.B.A. program. 

Benedictine University's doctoral program in Values-Driven Leadership draws some of the world's most distinguished scholars to serve as lecturers for the students in this program, which is designed for senior business executives. The university's faculty anchor the class, while scholars from around the world visit to provide face-to-face lectures and dialogues that give students access to the newest theories and research in their chosen fields.

A new webpage on the Center for Values-Driven Leadership's web portal highlights these distinguished visiting scholars and shares insights into their notable careers.

For the participating scholars, addressing the Ph.D./D.B.A. students is a chance to test their research and theories on a group of highly engaged practitioner-scholars. (Most students in the doctoral program are mid-career executives in positions of senior leadership with their firms.) Distinguished visiting scholars say the experience is enthralling:

"I can't get the experience of Benedictine out of my mind," says Diane Swanson, Ph.D., professor of management and the von Waaden Professor of Business Administration at Kansas State University. Swanson is a leading thinker in the field of corporate social responsibility and leadership ethics. "I think that something very special is going on in the values-driven leadership program. I know of no other program like it. I enjoyed every aspect of the weekend. It was incredibly stimulating to be around such highly motivated professionals who are intellectually curious and operating on a high level of moral reasoning."
