Cohen Professionalism Speaker Series

The Business Professionalism Speaker Series is a professional enrichment program offered by Marshall University Lewis College of Business and Brad D. Smith Schools of Business. The series allows students to make the connection between classroom learning and real-world business applications through meeting experienced and successful business people. Students who complete the program will receive a formal printed certificate, an engraved padfolio, and T-shirt.

This year’s theme is: “Growth and Resilience in the Business World”. The purpose of the theme is to help business students achieve their biggest goals through professional and personal growth and to give advice on how to cope with difficulties along the way.
