About the Series

Launched in April 2024 with the support of Cory Gunderson and his family, the Executive Speaker Series brings alumni at the top of their fields back to campus to share their unique insights and inspire the next generation of business leaders. 

Each event is formatted as a conversation with Dean of the Driehaus College of Business Sulin Ba. You can expect a lively, engaging conversation about each speaker's career journey from campus to the C-Suite; about the state of the industry today; and about what leadership means in a changing world. You can also expect to join in on the conversation with questions of your own. 

Whether you are a student just beginning to chart your course, an alumnus/a navigating your career or simply a member of the community who is passionate about hearing from today's leaders, we welcome you to join us.

Students: sign up here for the inaugural event on April 22, 2024. 

Sign up here if you are faculty/staff, an alumnus or a member of the community.​
