Stacy Severson

Campus Director – Minnesota School of Business

Tell me a little about you: where are you from?
I have lived in Richfield for the past ten years with my husband, two kids, Mara (6) and Lucas (4), our pug Ruby, cat Charlotte, and bunny, Diamond! I love the small town community of Richfield as well as the accessibility to businesses and parks in the area


Please describe what company you are with, your
job title, and what you do for this company.
I work for Minnesota School of Business in Richfield as the Campus Director. As a leader in Higher Education, I am invested in outcomes of student success as well as the professional development of our staff and faculty. I have worked with our network of schools since September of 2005, serving in various leadership roles. My current role is to offer support, training, and resources to the campus leadership team empowering them educate, motivate, and engage our students. I also oversee the overall operations of the campus including, but not limited to managing the campus budget, compliance with accreditation and state/federal agencies, and maintaining a high level of academic integrity. Further, I enjoy getting into the classroom as an instructor when my schedule allows! I am passionate about education and feel proud to be a part of an organization that works to support the needs of the business community, employees, and students.


What inspired you to join the Chamber?
MSB has been a longstanding member of the chamber and my campus had a membership before I joined the team three years ago. Prior to joining our campus in Richfield, I was the Campus Director at Globe University in Woodbury. During my time in Woodbury, I was a member of the Woodbury Chamber Board of Directors. I was able to see the natural fit between working in education and supporting workforce development. By being active in the chamber, I can nurture a partnership with local businesses to support the needs of a thriving business community. I also appreciate the networking opportunities, which help us find placement opportunities for our graduates in addition to engaging in meaningful applied learning experiences for our students. Positive collaboration with the chamber has also resulted in additional opportunities for us to promote our school and campus events in the community.


What do you do when you are not at
When I am not at work, my focus is really on spending time with my family. We spend a lot of time outdoors and frequent many of the parks in the area. I am also an avid runner and enjoy practicing yoga as well. I ran over 1000 miles this year and clocked in over 100 hours on my yoga mat in 2014! I also enjoy theatre, music, and reading if it fits in my schedule!
