Jamie Carr hosted a salon-style event May 7 to honor the Rady School of Management at her home in Rancho Santa Fe. The event was part of the school’s 10th anniversary outreach to the local community, with students, alumni and faculty in attendance, along with prominent business leaders in San Diego’s innovation economy. Greg Stein, CEO of Curtana Pharmaceuticals and a Rady Business School alum, was the featured speaker, sharing his insights into the field of cancer treatment and how his Rady education prepared him for his several entrepreneurial initiatives. Robert Sullivan, dean of the Rady Business School, also provided a history of the Rady School and its emphasis on innovation management for science, engineering and social entrepreneurship.
The Rady School, based at UC San Diego, offers MBA programs, executive education and an undergraduate business minor tailored to rising leaders in the region’s science, technology and biotech fields, as well as social entrepreneurs.
