Bethany Dohleman

Director, Nike | Workforce development | Class of 2005

No ifs, ands or buts about it: Bethany Dohleman’s favorite college memory will always be the night she met Mr. Right at Murphy’s Pub.

And the runner-up?

“Teaching so many diverse students across UIUC from different backgrounds,” says Nike’s director of workforce development, a two-degree UI grad (MS '05/statistics, Ph.D. '10/quantitative psychology).

“I spent a lot of time helping people learn how to use data and analytics to make better business decisions,” she says. “Teaching statistics throughout graduate school in a couple of different departments taught me how to be a better teacher and has had a lasting positive impact on my career.”
