Business Week has long been part of the Haile/US Bank College of Business and our strong desire to create linkages between students and the business community we serve. The annual event exposes students to valuable, cutting-edge business-centered presentations from experienced professionals and provides students with networking opportunities with local employers.


This year, the event will take place virtually on March 23 & 24 with two keynote speakers, sixteen breakout session and 3 behind the scenes facility video tours. MOST College of Business classes will be canceled these days to allow students to participate. As each class policy may be different, please check your course syllabus and confirm with your professors.
