Tera Galloway

Associate Professor

Tera Galloway (she/her/hers) is an associate professor in the Department of Management at the University of St. Thomas Opus College of Business where she teaches both undergraduate business and MBA programs. Prior to coming to St. Thomas, she was an associate professor of strategy and entrepreneurship in the College of Business at Illinois State University.

Galloway uses a collaborative and experiential approach in the classroom where students take an active role in shaping the class discussions. Galloway received her Ph.D. from Washington State University in 2013. Prior to her academic career, she worked for nine years as Vice President of an occupational and physical therapy firm. Additionally, she worked for several startup companies in the exercise equipment and medical field. She is often able to capitalize on these experiences by bringing her expertise into the classroom.

Her research extends into both strategy and entrepreneurship as she focuses on strategic alliances, competition, legitimacy, and governance. Much of her research examines the positive and negative network effects of legitimacy spillovers, founders’ advice networks and coopetitive networks among new ventures. She has published in several journals including Strategic Management Journal, Entrepreneurship Theory and Practice, Journal of Business Research and Journal of Business Ethics.

Originally from Michigan, Galloway has traveled extensively within and outside of the United States. She is excited to be back in the Great Lakes region.
