The College Of Business & Economics At Longwood University Presents
The Executive-In-Residence Series
"Global Leadership Values"
To succeed in today's global economy requires a well-developed global IQ. With a mission of educating future business leaders, the College of Business and Economics offers multiple opportunities for students to develop their global intelligence. This includes bringing knowledge and experiential learning about such topics as global leadership values and ethics into the classroom. The 2012-13 Executive-in-Residence series brings four global leaders, each of whom understands the necessity and benefits of a strong global IQ, to campus for a full day of interaction with students and faculty.
By fostering a dialog with today's business leaders, the Executive-in-Residence series is just one of the ways that the Longwood University College of Business and Economics prepares students to be successful citizen leaders with the knowledge and skills to advance their careers, their organizations, and their communities.
All programs begin at 7:00 P.M. at Longwood University in Farmville, Va. The public is invited.
