        Harbert College of Business students have the opportunity to hear stories and learn valuable lessons from alumni business leaders, executives and professors April 4-7 at Lowder Hall. Sponsored by the college’s Office of Professional and Career Development, the Legends & Leaders Career Conversations Series offers expertise in topics such as networking, the importance of data in the workplace, and how to navigate the business world directly out of college.

        “Legends and Leaders brings these successful, knowledgeable and helpful speakers directly to our students so that our students can ask honest questions and get real answers,” said Melissa Voynich, Student Engagement and Marketing Coordinator at Harbert College. “This might be the best or only chance to meet these speakers and hear their stories before students start out on their own career paths.”
