Business Leadership Conference

The College of Business will hold its fifth annual Business Leadership Conference on Monday, March 18, 2019 in the new Student Center, bringing in local titans of industry to speak to more than 1,700 business students.

The conference helps to prepare our students for the realities of the business world in a professional conference environment and provides opportunities to interact with ECU’s Business Advisory Council members, esteemed alumni, employers, and community members. The event complements the intensive leadership preparation that students receive during enrollment in the business program.

Presenters will speak about leadership experiences and lessons learned. The conference will kick-off with a keynote address followed by 35 breakout sessions. The Business Leadership Conference is free for juniors, seniors, and graduate students in the College of Business, and made possible by generous donations from conference sponsors. The conference will use the ECU Guidebook app that can be downloaded from the Apple Store or Play Store. Search: ECU Guides, then search again for #ECUCOBLeads to located the conference program. This will provide the most updated conference information for your convenience!

Dr. Paul Schwager, interim dean of the College of Business, said, “This is a tremendous event that inspires and informs our students, and the presenters touch lives in ways they can’t imagine. ECU is known as a leadership university, and this event shows how the College of Business is determined to lead in the development of tomorrow’s business leaders.”
