Each year, the Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal recognizes outstanding women in business for their leadership qualities, drive and commitment to serving the broader Twin Cities community. Among the 51 honorees were four alumnae of the Opus College of Business’ graduate business programs.

Ellyn Hosch, Prime Therapeutics
When she’s not leading the transformation of Prime Therapeutics IT team, you’ll find Hosch in the garden or kitchen. A 1987 Evening UST MBA graduate, Hosch is actively working to transform the way health care and technology work together to significantly improve patient health outcomes and total cost of care.

Dannette Coleman, Medica Inc.
A 2005 graduate of the Evening UST MBA program, Coleman is seen as a change agent. With more than 20 years of health care experience, she was promoted to senior vice president of Medica’s individual-business segment. When asked what other career she would be most interested in, she said lobbying.

Roberta Dressen, Medtronic Inc.

Dressen has a lofty goal for life … to make a meaningful contribution to humanity. As a 2007 alumna of the Evening UST MBA program, she is set to work on this goal through a career in health sciences and administration. As a child, she wanted to be a doctor … now she represents Medtronic’s commitment to obtaining data that enhances the quality and safety of medical devices.

Mary Beth Schubert, Comcast Corp.
A 2009 alumna of the Master of Business Communication program, Schubert is responsible for managing the image of a company that is a lightning rod for public comment and government scrutiny. While she would love to own her own business, she focuses on giving people reasons to love companies they love to hate.
