Diversity in Business Lecture Series

The Diversity in Business Lectures are offered during the fall and spring semesters and consist of a series of presentations by School of Business Alumni or industry professionals. The purpose of the lecture series is to provide students with an opportunity to learn about diversity, leadership, creativity, product innovation, entrepreneurial thinking and persuasive communication from industry executives or UConn Alumni.
