Commencement Speaker

ANN ROSENBERG VICE PRESIDENT, HEAD OF GLOBAL SAP UNIVERSITY ALLIANCES Join me in empowering youth all over the world, and inspiring the passion in the individual person to do everything -- and bring your passion to work too. It doesn't matter where you come from and what your background is, what matters is to find your passion in yourself and follow your heart, always believe in yourself, and then not forget to always have a mission, be able to mobilize, and make it happen. Located in Silicon Valley, I am an active participant and spokesperson for driving one's passion to work, across all continents in every diversity. At SAP I work as Vice President Head of Global SAP University Alliances which opens up the world of SAP to more than 2,300 universities in more than 90 countries worldwide, and aims to develop highly qualified graduates with critical skills for the 21st century workforce. Through a community of over 8,000 faculty members as well as engagement at over 1,400 events annually, SAP University Alliances has inspired students around the world about SAP. SAP University Alliances also fosters entrepreneurship and innovation with Millennials through crowdsourcing, inspiring students to form startup companies leveraging SAP technologies.

The key focus is to prepare the next generation for the future of work.
