Bellevue University Marketing Professor’s Dedication and Innovation a Testimonial to Quality Learning
Every year, Dr. Julia Cronin-Gilmore shares her knowledge with hundreds of students in marketing courses at Bellevue University. As a member of Bellevue University’s respected faculty, she embodies the ideals of Real Learning for Real Life.
Students she teaches or oversee create over 600 marketing plans for a small business or non-profit each year. This enables students to gain real-world experience and is a testament to the University’s commitment to community service and partnerships. Some of these students have won awards from participating in contests with the American Marketing Association.
Realizing that students need to be prepared for what will await them upon graduation, Dr. Cronin-Gilmore stepped outside of lecture arena, and called upon nationally known companies to provide real life case studies for students to learn from and discuss. She received a great response, and was able to infuse this knowledge into some of the classes she taught. Dr. Cronin-Gilmore is proud of this opportunity for students. "They go back to their job the next day and apply what they’ve learned, even if it is not marketing," she said.
Her commitment to bring real-world knowledge to the classroom continues outside of the course work. Dr. Cronin-Gilmore has been on the boards of local and national organizations, staying current on what is relevant in the business world today. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of SAC Federal Credit Union. The Credit Union has assets of $460 million, 200 employees and 18 branches with one more planned to open this year, making it the largest credit union in Nebraska.
Dr. Cronin-Gilmore is a published author, including a book on marketing for small companies just released in 2010- Small Business Marketing Strategy, and numerous other publications. She has received several awards, and been recognized by both the business community and her peers.
