That partnership allows Catawba to offer two bachelor’s degree programs on several of Central Piedmont’s campuses ... Bowe is completing his doctor of business administration degree, with a major in marketing and research emphasis of sales ethics and entrepreneurial marketing, at Anderson University in Indiana."

A double-major in psychology and religion at DePauw, Jeff Bowe earned an M.B.A. from Indiana University.  BeforeEast College tall xz joining Catawba, he was a tenure-track assistant professor at Eastern Nazarene College, and an adjunct faculty member at Oakland City University, Anderson University, Capella University and Indiana Wesleyan University. Bowe also has 25 years of business experience, and has owned several companies.

"I have over 16 years in adult education, six years as faculty and staff, but much more importantly, over 10 years as an adult student,," he tells the newspaper. "I get that juggling act of work, school and life because I have lived it. Students who did not go straight to college from high school have unique wants and needs, and I look forward to increasing Catawba’s support and service to this growing population."
