Karen Eboch, Ed.D.
Supply chain management, organizational development, and leadership are Ms. Eboch’s areas of research and expertise. She is actively involved in ‘flipping’ her classes to provide meaningful experiential learning opportunities to her students, including the completion of over 110 service learning projects with area nonprofit organizations.
She holds the APICS CSCP (Certified Supply Chain Professional) designation and brings over ten years of retail management experience to the classroom. Her reasoning for becoming a college professor is, in her words – “To help others find their passion and path . . . and because I could never sit behind a desk all day!”
With a focus on student learning and development, she has been recognized for her efforts with the International APICS Student Chapter Mentor of the Year award (2008 and 2015), BGSU Schmidthorst College of Business Leadership Council Excellence in Teaching Award (2016), BGSU Schmidthorst College of Business Marie Hodge Advising Award (2007, 2013, and 2016) and Alumni Undergraduate Teaching Award (2006 and 2014), as well as the Schmidthorst College of Business Hoskins Faculty Leadership and Innovation Award (2009). She advises the Delta Sigma Pi Professional Business fraternity and co-advises the APICS Platinum award winning BGSU Supply Chain Management Association student chapter—ranking BGSU in the top 3% of all APICS student chapters internationally!
