If you are a business student at Dominican University of California, particularly a student-athlete, you are going to meet Dr. Christopher Leeds and he is going to be one of your biggest supporters.

As the Professor of Management in the AACSB accredited Barowsky School of Business, Dr. Leeds doubles as Dominican’s Faculty Athletic Representative. That means he is not only going to be watching your games and matches, but he also is going to be watching out for your career. Dr. Leeds’ business connections and guidance helps students navigate their career paths – which often begin long before they graduate.
Just ask his former students:
