Executive Speaker Series

Hosted by the School of Economics and Business Administration (SEBA), the Executive Speaker Series brings CEOs, presidents and other top corporate leaders from some of the nation’s most important companies, non-profits, and non-governmental organizations to share their views on topics of societal, academic, and professional importance.

The Executive Speaker Series strives to stimulate insightful, provocative conversation on current issues by providing a platform for high level executives to speak about cutting-edge issues, challenge conventional wisdom and tactics, elaborate on trends, share wisdom, and provide important career inspiration and advice for our students, faculty, alumni and larger Saint Mary’s community.
