Dean Glenn Hubbard and Annual Dinner Chair Lulu Wang ’83, CEO of Tupelo Capital, welcomed 1,000 guests to the School’s 29th Annual Dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria last night. The event, which raised $2.2 million, honored Bob Wright, chairman and CEO of NBC Universal, and Senator Frank Lautenberg ’49 with the School’s Distinguished Leadership in Business and Government Awards, respectively.
In his remarks to the packed ballroom, Dean Hubbard emphasized the School’s mission to imbue future leaders with an entrepreneurial mind-set and a global perspective. Hubbard also spoke of the importance of faculty research, saying that the ideas that research generates have the potential to reshape business practice. The Annual Dinner represents one of the many opportunities for an exchange of such ideas among business leaders, faculty members and alumni.
