Ahmed made the move to OSU on September 15, 2010 after more than 16 years at UA.
A two time CBA graduate, Ahmed earned his B. S. degree in Information Systems Management in 2001 and his MBA (Electronic Business) degree in 2004. He had served as director of UA dining services since 2004.
"I have been very fortunate and thankful for all the opportunities at The University of Akron," says Ahmed. "I am also very excited to have a new opportunity at The Ohio State University. I certainly appreciate all the support from my dedicated team at UA. I am looking forward to working with the great team at OSU.”
Colleagues and friends regretfully bid farewell to Ahmed and his wife Carrie ’97, an administrative assistant in the CBA Dean’s Office, at a reception on Friday, September 10.
Best wishes Zia and Carrie!
