Business Week 2011
April 11-15
Corporate Social Responsibility and Ethical Leadership

Business Week has long been a highlight for the UT Arlington College of Business, a full week set aside to connect faculty and students with business and community leaders.

The theme for Business Week 2011 is Corporate Social Responsibility and Ethical Leadership.

Business Week is an ideal way to bring executives to the University campus and for them to become acquainted with a promising new generation of business leaders. For students, Business Week is an opportunity to meld theory with application. Guest speakers will share their experiences and present case studies from their companies.

Guest speakers will present during regular undergraduate and graduate classes. Students not enrolled in these classes may attend the guest speaker presentations, but space is limited.
