Connecting Students with Global Business Leaders
During each fall and spring semester The University of Montana School of Business Administration hosts the Harold and Priscilla Gilkey Executive Lecture Series. The series is designed to provide students, faculty, and the community with a forum whereby they have direct access to business leaders.
Gilkey Executive Lecturers address issues across marketing, management, finance, ethics, and leadership. In addition to leading classroom lectures and discussion, speakers present a lecture at a public forum on a topic of their choice and are invited to meet with graduate students and campus and community leaders. Participating executives enjoy dynamic conversation and the exchange of ideas with our eager students.
We welcome and encourage executives to share their stories of challenges and success with our students, faculty and community. As business professionals generously enrich us all with their experiences and insights, the UM School of Business Administration offers its appreciation and promises this - the thinking is clearer up here.
