Charlotte Kennedy Takahashi will be spending the spring semester at Tabor College in Hillsboro as Entrepreneur in Residence.
The 1968 Tabor graduate is an international authority in the fields of entrepreneurship, international business, and business ethics. She will interact with and mentor students in the business department, teaching and leading entrepreneurship initiatives on campus and in the community.
Takahashi has a master of arts degree in Chinese history from the University of Colorado. She later attended Thunderbird School of Global Management, where she earned a master’s degree in international business.
Her career has led her to develop several consulting firms including Oak Associates, an executive search and human resource firm in Japan with satellite offices in the United Kingdom and the U.S.
Tabor College Vice President for Academic Affairs Frank Johnson said Takahashi will help Tabor fulfill its vision to be the college of choice for students who seek a life-transforming, academically excellent, globally relevant, and decidedly Christian education.
