The VIP Speaker Series is the official McCombs School of Business Lecturer Series. Executives from all fields in business, from technology and finance to accounting, consulting and beyond are invited to speak about their experiences, successes, and struggles at the McCombs School of Business. We hold the Speaker Series throughout the academic year. This program has brought many esteemed executives and best-selling authors to McCombs. This is one of the Undergraduate Business Council’s most prestigious programs, known across the university. Students, professors and staff flock to hear the stories of executives from around the world.
The VIP Speaker Series has implemented a new Q&A format. Students are asked to submit questions they would like to ask the executives before the event. An interviewer, usually a McCombs Business Member, interviews the speaker based on the questions received and accepted. Afterward, the audience is free to ask more questions. Some executives also have a “meet and greet” with some students after the event.
