Business has been disrupted and changed in unprecedented ways over the last decades. Between tech booms & recessions, phenomenal growth & market crashes, political unrest and a pandemic, old ways of thinking are being challenged, and rules being revised. We are witnessing innovation, and the evolution of business, right before our eyes.
In the Innovation Salon students will be hearing from industry leaders about challenges and opportunities that face their industries during off-the-record conversations. It will allow them to gain a broader perspective on how businesses across the globe are being disrupted and how innovation is driving new opportunities. There will be unique opportunities for students to interact and network with speakers and selected alumni. Past speakers have included former Wal-Mart E-Commerce CEO and entrepreneur Marc Lore; former Macy's CEO Terry Lundgren; the CFOs of the NBA, MLB, and MLS; Wall Street Journal tech columnist Walt Mossberg; former chief editor of the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post Marcus Brauchli; and retired Air Force General, former Commander of both U.S. Space Command and U.S. Strategic Command Kevin Chilton.
This course is only open to MBA students.
