HRM Executive Speaker Series
Each semester, the School of Hotel and Restaurant Management brings experienced experts in the hospitality industry as part of the Executive Speaker Series. These industry leaders share their experiences and advice to students that elevate their knowledge and give them skills to help in their job searches and career progression.
