Dr. Karen Moustafa Leonard Karen Moustafa Leonard, who recently left her position as associate professor at Indiana University at Fort Wayne, has recently been appointed as professor and Chair of Management in the UALR College of Business.

Leonard, who says she “loves being a professor more than almost anything,” earned her Master of Science degree in Commerce from University of Auckland in New Zealand and her PhD in Management from the University of Memphis in 2004.

Her research emphasis is in organizational behavior, which Leonard describes simply as “how people interact in organizations. It includes such things as dysfunctional behaviors, accountability, and time orientation in organizations. Also includes cross-cultural organizational work with lots of international colleagues, which requires travel to these countries.”
