BUSADM 2600: Undergraduate Speaker Series Course

This is a great opportunity for students to learn about the business specializations from Alumni who are currently working.  We bring in speakers from each specialization to discuss what they are doing, why they selected their major, why their personality and skill set fit with their major/career, etc.  Students also have the opportunity to have lunch with one or two speakers of their highest interest areas to talk more in-depth with them about their choices.  This 1-credit hour course is taught Spring semester each year.
