UHD Hosts Coca-Cola Leadership

Coca-Cola has been the exclusive beverage partner for UHD for many years. However, this partnership includes so much more than thousands of Gators enjoying Coca-Cola products on campus every day. This week at UHD, a group of Coca-Cola leaders visited the Shea Street Building for an important education session.

Lead by UHD College of Business Associate Dean, Kevin Barksdale, Ph.D., and facilitated through the College of Business office of Continuing and Professional Education, this training focused on strengthening teams by empowering Coca-Cola leaders to support the professional development of their team members.

Coca-Cola Human Resource Business Partner Cheryl Houghton, and dedicated UHD alumna, was instrumental in the working group that developed the highly successful UHD MBA Concentration in Human Resource Management. Cheryl, along with Coca-Cola Market Unit Vice President Rick Kehr, worked with the College of Business to craft a program to address the specific needs of the Coca-Cola team.

UHD is grateful for Coca-Cola's support of the university, and proud of our incredible alumni who help lead great companies. We are excited to continue serving as a resource for Coca-Cola and the broader business community.
