Rady Professional Seminar Series

The Rady Executive Speaker Series offers access to innovative leaders, experts and advisors and to a variety of professional skill development opportunities. Business leaders share career experiences with MBA students and alumni. Senior executives from local, regional, national and global companies are invited to make a presentation, which is followed by a question and answer session to encourage discussion among those present. This dialogue often provides rich insight into the challenges encountered and decisions required to a successful organization. Alumni are invited to attend these seminars (based on availability) that are held on the Rady School campus. This is an alumni-only invite, please do not bring guests. Space is limited and RSVP is required.
