Elizabeth Welsh teaches in the undergraduate and MBA programs. Before joining the University of St. Thomas in 2010, she was a senior instructor in the Human Resources and Industrial Relations program at the University of Minnesota. Before earning her Ph.D., she worked across industry and functional areas, including positions as vice president of organizational development at InstallShield Software Corp., strategy consultant at McKinsey & Co., program manager at Microsoft and financial analyst at First Boston. Given this background, she chooses research projects that either address questions that leaders need answers to, or tries to make research more relevant for those leaders. For example, she has done significant work on mentoring, a key contributor to career success, and is currently working on a project looking at how employees successfully manage their bosses.
