Teresa Rose

Dr. Teresa Rose has been part of the Faculty of Business at Athabasca University since 2003 – first joining as a “coach” within the MBA program, then serving as the Applied Project Coordinator, and more recently taking on an Assistant Professor role.

Teresa obtained her BA honors degree in Psychology from the University of Regina, her MA in Sport and Physical Education, MBA, and PhD in Organizational Analysis from the University of Alberta, and then received her Executive Coaching designation from Royal Roads University in Victoria, BC.  Teresa is currently ensuring the development and implementation of courses specific to AU’s new MBA in Hockey Management; coordinating and coaching the Strategy and Organization core course within the MBA; and researching in the areas of collaboration and organizational change. Teresa’s present research interests focus on creating collaborative capacity and the capacity for large scale organization or system change within professional and amateur sport organizations as well as health and mental health care organizations and services.

Prior to Athabasca University Teresa held an Assistant Professor role at the University of Alberta where she contributed mostly to the evolution of the Master of Arts in Communication and Technology Program and engaged in two large collaborative research projects – one to transform the communication practices within the Civil Justice System and the other to understand and provide recommendations on the evolution of the Southern Alberta Child and Youth Health Network. Teresa also taught at the University of Calgary, University of Waterloo, University of Western Sydney, and did a short visiting professor role at Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane Australia prior to coming to a permanent position at Athabasca University.

In addition to academic experience Teresa brings years of work experience including 25 years of coaching experience (in both private and volunteer run sport organizations); case work experience (in both government and not-for-profit organizations); and consulting experience (primarily in the not-for-profit sector in the area of program development and implementation and the management of organizational change in mental health services).
