GSOM Dean Catherine Usoff to speak at Southborough Library on ‘building leaders with a purpose’

Catherine Usoff, dean of the Clark University Graduate School of Management, will present “Clark University Builds Business Leaders with Purpose” at 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 8, at the Southborough Library, 25 Main St., Southborough, Mass. Her talk is part of the INSIDE STORY speaker series, sponsored by the library’s Southborough Business Network.

Usoff, who assumed the helm of the business school a year ago, will highlight Clark University’s unique approach to management education, which is designed to give its students a competitive advantage when they graduate into an increasingly dynamic, global marketplace. With its various concentrations and dual degrees, the MBA curriculum emphasizes social change, community development, and sustainability in addition to traditional technical business skills.

Clark University has had a presence in Southborough for four years. Its MetroWest Campus is a satellite facility for commuting students and serves as a training and off-site meeting location for local businesses. The Southborough campus is connected exclusively to Clark’s Graduate School of Management.
