COBE and the Bay Area Community
Robert Linscheid, President and CEO of the San Francisco Chamber of Commerce on COBE:
"Since our mission is to attract, develop and retain business in San Francisco we need to make sure we're partnering with all resources in our community. With the creation of the College of Business Enterprises (COBE), San Francisco State University College of Business has recognized the importance of academia playing it's part. We're excited to see the emergence of their executive education seminars/programs and faculty/student consulting projects which encourages academia and industry collaborations on multiple fronts. All of this is important to maintain our robust economy and future growth."
Jim Wunderman, President & CEO of the Bay Area Council on COBE:
"We're very excited about what's going on at San Francisco State University's College of Business. The creation of the College of Business Enterprises (COBE) clearly aligns with the Bay Area's need to have robust relationships between industry and academia. Better prepared students ensure that businesses have the talent necessary to grow and move forward. Whether we're talking about sustainability or innovation, I'm glad to see that the SF State College of Business is doing its part to lead the charge."
