B&E Speaker Series

The WVU College of Business and Economics Distinguished Speaker Series features deans, entrepreneurs, company presidents, executives and other business leaders from all over the world. The presence of these great minds on the University campus sparks ideas and encourages conversation and debate among students, faculty, alumni, the University community and other friends of the College.

All events are free and open to the public. Shuttle services are offered from B&E to lectures held on the Evansdale campus or at the Waterfront Place Hotel.
