Management and Leadership Program to Present Guest Lecture Series

The Hellenic College Management and Leadership Program will present Business & Society: Guest Lecture Series selected Wednesdays and Fridays from 12:10 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. The lectures will take place in the Hellenic College Skouras Classroom Building, Room #221. 

Business is not an island unto itself but must coexist with an external environment that has the power to regulate and also become its best ally. These guest speakers have been invited to bring "real life" to the classroom and energize the students into considering the various sectors that business is a part of (government, nonprofit, for-profit). This lecture series is part of MGMT - 2351 Business and Society class taught by Mrs. Denise Simion during Spring 2013. This course emphasizes businesses’ social and ethical responsibilities to both external and internal stakeholder groups. The course focuses on ethical and global issues and on the influence of political, social, legal and regulatory, environmental and technological issues on business.

All lectures are open to the HCHC community! If you are planning on attending, please send an email to dsimion@hchc.edu.
