Ilitch School presents "What’s next? The post-pandemic future of business" speaker series
Beginning in January 2021, the Mike Ilitch School of Business will host a monthly, virtual speaker series. While the specific topics discussed during each session will be determined by the moderator and his/her featured guest, the general theme of the winter series is “What’s next? The post-pandemic future of business.” The primary audience is current Wayne State University students, although the series will be open to the broader community.
All Wayne State University students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends are invited to attend this free event, which will include an insightful discussion between our moderator and featured guest, followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
The series is presented by the Ilitch School’s Graduate Programs Office and emceed by Assistant Dean Kiantee Rupert-Jones.
