Business Week has long been part of the Haile 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 on September 26-29 with two keynotes, thirty-three breakout sessions, 90+ hiring employers, a luncheon celebration and more! On Tuesday, September 27 and Wednesday, September 28 all College of Business classes will be canceled to allow students to participate in the two-day business-centered conference.
