News Story

Your next networking opportunity is here! Join Lubin and their lineup of guest speakers at the highly anticipated Roundtable series. You’ll receive expert advice from c-suite leaders in business, and even get a chance to ask questions.

Each semester, Lubin partners with Alumni Relations for an exclusive series of roundtable discussions between alumni and current students. This brings the boardroom into the classroom by providing students with active learning opportunities and even networking. Led by Dean Lawrence G.

These roundtable discussions provide an opportunity for students to learn and ask questions, as well as provide alumni with an impactful and engaging experience.
