The Greehey School of Business will host Business Week beginning Oct. 3.

Business Week is a forum for students to get connected with the real world and learn from top business and civic leaders. The three-day event includes a job fair (Meet-the-Firms), the La Quinta Keynote Lecture, and lectures and workshops on current topics from top business leaders.

The week concludes with an awards dinner and reception to celebrate student and faculty achievements. It is also a platform for companies to network with other business leaders, renew old connections and create new ones. This event is a longstanding tradition in the Greehey School of Business. 

8All lectures will be held in the Alkek Business Building, Atrium, unless otherwise stated.
