Ms. Jean Rogers "is Deputy Director for Programs at the Center for International Private Enterprise (CIPE), collaborating with regional program staff on strategies and program development and overseeing a variety of training and special projects. From 1995-1999 she headed CIPE’s USAID-funded office in Budapest, Hungary, furthering the Center’s mission of strengthening democracy through the promotion of private enterprise and market-oriented reform. During her tenure the Budapest Center worked with top level government and Parliamentary officials to tackle complex issues of economic growth and, perhaps more importantly, assisted dozens of local groups in their efforts to become part of the policy-making process, advancing the concept of open exchange and advocacy as pillars of a strong democracy. Ms. Rogers also has led sessions for CIPE on regional trading blocs in Africa, the development of think tanks in Central Europe, cross-border program models, and various aspects of small business growth in Central Europe, as well as trained women’s groups and business associations from throughout the world in strategic planning and association management. She holds a Masters Degree in International Transactions (Commerce and Policy) from George Mason University in Virginia and a Bachelor’s Degree with Honors in German from the University of Georgia. Prof. Rogers will co-teach the Informal Sector Development, and the Global Economy course with Prof. John Sullivan.“
