One of the most motivating and impressive features of studying Business and Economics at The Catholic University of America is the access to extraordinary faculty. As Dr. Abela mentioned in his orientation presentation for new students, our faculty put the phrase, “those who can’t do, teach” to shame. Our faculty members have held top executive positions with Fortune 500 companies, they’ve been presidential appointees, they’ve been Fulbright Scholars, they’ve been named “DC Professor of the Year” and they’ve traveled the globe for business and research—needless to say, our professors teach and they do.
For this reason, over the course of the fall semester, our department will host a “Faculty Research Series” which will highlight the recent work of several remarkable professors.
These lectures will take place in the Edward J. Pryzbyla Center, Room 327 at 1 PM on the days indicated below. They are open to all who wish to attend. Please see the schedule below for more detailed information.
