The MS in Global Leadership (MSGL) program presents a new speaker series: Conversations with a Global Entrepreneur (CGE). The goal of the CGE Series is to connect current students and alumni with leaders who have proven themselves in the global marketplace. This new series seeks to host trailblazers in innovation, managers of all industries and individuals who have mastered the many intricacies of navigating a global supply chain and/or conducting business across multi-national boundaries. First and foremost, these business leaders will be able to articulate their story of building a brand and/or business from the ground up. They will also be willing to share with an audience their personal and professional accomplishments that have been transformational in their journey to business and industry leadership and what it takes to be a global entrepreneur in this new modern economy.

The first speaker in the CGE Series is Sarah Ford, the founder of Ranch Road Boots. Sarah, a friend of the MSGL program, is a Harvard MBA graduate, Marine Corps veteran and a global entrepreneur with a great story to tell. We look forward to hosting her and for you to have an opportunity to network and learn from someone who has successfully turned a vision into reality. You can read more about Sarah by visiting her website

This event is open and free to all USD business students and alumni.
