Mike Ilitch School of Business to sponsor DBusiness Breakfast Series

The Mike Ilitch School of Business at Wayne State University will serve as the exclusive higher education sponsor for the 2017 DBusiness Breakfast Series. The series is held six times per year, with each event showcasing the business leaders, professionals and individuals featured in the current issue of DBusiness magazine.

“We are so grateful for our new partnership with the Mike Illitch School of Business on our DBusiness Breakfast series,” said Jason Hosko, advertising director for DBusiness. “It provides an opportunity for DBusiness to engage with the future business leaders of Detroit, and work toward a common goal of enhancing the economic vitality of our city.”

Steve Townsend, director of marketing and communications for the Ilitch School, said the sponsorship is a great opportunity to showcase the school to a highly targeted audience.

“The breakfasts are also a great opportunity for our students, faculty and friends to network with the movers and shakers of the local business community and to continue to position ourselves as ‘Detroit’s Business School,’” he said.

The next event in the series, “Downtown Detroit’s Resurgence,” is on Feb. 7, featuring keynote speaker Eric Larson, CEO of the Downtown Detroit Partnership. Public tickets to the breakfast are $65 each or $500 for a group of 10. To purchase tickets, click here.
