Angela Livingston – Business Program Chair at Globe University Sioux Falls

~ submitted by Doug Murdock, campus librarian

Our Globe University Sioux Falls Business Program Chair, Angela Livingston, was influenced in her career path by a person- her sister. I’ll let her tell the rest of the story. 

“After high school I attended Southeast Technical Institute (STI) where I majored in accounting. After 3 semesters in accounting, I realized that just wasn’t for me, the numbers just never equaled. I switched to Business Administration and graduated with an Associate of Applied Science, and never looked back.

After graduating from STI, I worked in industry for a number of years and then decided to go back to school at the University of Sioux Falls (USF). I graduated from there with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing, Operations Management, and Entrepreneurship. While attending USF, I talked my sister into finishing her degree and we graduated at the same time.

After graduation, she told me that she was going to go on for her Master’s Degree, so like any little sister would do, I followed. This means that I also have a Master’s in Business Administration from Colorado Technical University. Then, my sister said she was continuing on for her PhD, so again, I followed. I am in the process of finishing my dissertation for my PhD in Organization and Management at Capella University. I am done following my sister!”
