Her areas of expertise include Womenomics and emerging markets. Candice earned a B.S. in Marketing, magna cum laude, from Rutgers University and an MBA in Finance and Management from Columbia Business School.
Tse’s presentation is the inaugural event for Converse College’s new President’s Leadership Forum, which will bring to campus inspiring and engaging national and global leaders to interact with students and the Upstate community and to present on leadership topics. “The President’s Leadership Forum is one of several steps Converse is taking to build stronger partnerships with our business community, and to serve as a resource both in terms of professional development and workforce development,” Converse President Krista Newkirk said. Since joining Converse in 2016, Newkirk has sought opportunities to learn about workforce development needs from the Upstate area business community. As a member of the OneSpartanburg Talent Action Team, she is helping create a formal framework for convening large employers and colleges to discuss unmet workforce needs, technical skills, and behavioral competency gaps employers are seeing, and professional development needs colleges may provide for area employers.
