James Muhammad, president and CEO of Lakeshore Public Media, is now a member of the National Council of Valparaiso University’s College of Business.
The council provides the dean of the College of Business with expertise, advice, and useful critique about the college’s programs, mission, and direction. Its members include leaders in their respective professions, which meet twice annually.
“It’s an honor to be invited to serve on the National Council as it plays such a pivotal role in shaping the future of the programs within the university’s esteemed business college,” said Muhammad, a 2021 graduate of the college’s MBA program. “Valparaiso University and Lakeshore Public Media are both forward-thinking, innovative organizations that strive to make a positive impact in our community, so it is always a pleasure to collaborate with their leadership.”
Niclas Erhardt, dean of the College of Business at Valparaiso University, said Muhammad’s perspective and understanding of the economical and professional employment needs and opportunities for Northwest Indiana make him a good fit for the council.
“The College of Business at Valpo offers high-quality hands-on experiential education,” Erhardt said. “Part of our employment placement success is that our MBA and undergraduate programs are truly employer-driven.”
Lakeshore Public Media has been a public broadcasting entity based in Northwest Indiana for nearly 35 years. Lakeshore Public Media operates both Lakeshore PBS and Lakeshore Public Radio.
