Guest Speakers Important to Graduate Degree

Feedback from students has been so strong that we will begin a regular series of guest speakers in the MSBA program this fall with an event called Thirsty Thursday.  Every third Thursday of the month after classes end, we will convene in the graduate lounge with refreshments for an informal session with a business leader.  We will learn of their background, rise to success, key success factors and their advice about success in the current market.
