Applied Business Lecture Series

The Applied Business Lecture Series is designed to bring real-world discussion into the Shepherd University business classroom. The class will achieve this by inviting successful business professionals, CEOs, and innovators as guest lectures to share their stories, lessons learned, and what employers expect of their employees in today’s business climate. Students have been encouraged to invite peers, faculty, family and community members to join the class for the first hour.
