Gina Wilson means business. She is, hands down, one of finance’s most powerful players. According to a 2013 Fortune Magazine article, “Power Women CFOs,” the TIAA-CREF executive has helped to increase her company’s assets under management by hundreds of billions of dollars. A phenomenal achievement, it underscores Wilson’s willingness to constantly grow, improve, and take risks—often as the only woman in the room.
ILLINOIS is a launching point for a very long life after college. You’ll connect with friends who will be friends for life, and colleagues you’ll cross paths with over decades. Invest in your relationships and keep them current.
Until this semester, Joe Mahoney had just a short walk from his Wohlers Hall office to the BIF classrooms where he teaches courses in business administration. But in September, his commute to class got 40 miles longer every Friday. That’s the day Mahoney travels to the Danville Correctional Center to teach strategic management to a class of 15 incarcerated students.
