Jennifer Teague M.B.A. ’01

It was because of some fantastic UH faculty that I figured out I wanted to be a professor one day and the field of global business had my heart. I am so grateful for the foundation laid as part of my UH MBA studies!

Dr. Jennifer Teague (UH, MBA ’01) recently received the 2022 Purdue University Global “Organization Builders” Award, which celebrates significant and innovative growth at the university. Purdue Global (PG), part of the esteemed Purdue University system, offers degree and certificate programs to more than 35,000 remote adult learners. On December 15th, a select group of PG faculty and staff received recognition for their impact, innovation, best practices, and measurable outcomes with G.L.O.B.A.L. Distinction Awards.

Dr. Teague, a graduate faculty member and program lead for Global Business in the School of Business and IT, is regarded as a visionary who has demonstrated persistence, consistency, and leadership in the development of an equity-focused Education Abroad program for nontraditional adult learners at a remote institution. This program differentiates PG from other large virtual universities while also fulfilling its land-grant mission by providing an avenue for global and virtual travel that most nontraditional students may not be able to otherwise experience. What started as a concentration in two specific programs (MBA and MS in Management and Leadership) has grown to a graduate concentration, standalone undergraduate and graduate offerings, a Global Business microcredential, and an alternate globalized MBA capstone course. All PG Education Abroad opportunities also provide participants with an opportunity to earn the AFS Global Competence Certificate, which is a distinguished mark of advanced intercultural skills.

“The opportunity to recognize members of our faculty and staff who have been recommended by their peers is one of the highlights of the year,” Purdue Global Chancellor Frank Dooley said. “It is the efforts of individuals and teams like these, and so many more, that have helped Purdue Global continue to prosper. They are symbolic of the passion demonstrated by all our employees, and it is a pleasure to honor them.”
