A new space for thought-provoking discussions and business relationships is opening this week at the UCF College of Business Administration (#UCFBusiness). “The Exchange,” sponsored by FAIRWINDS Credit Union, will transform the old Magruder Lab (Business Administration 1, Room 148) into a gathering place for approximately 125 guests.
“The best education occurs when you get a chance to sit and have a conversation with someone who has something interesting to say. The more opportunities you have to participate in such conversations, the more you are going to learn,” states Paul Jarley, Ph.D., dean of the UCF College of Business Administration. “So, we will provide that opportunity to more than 25,000 students each semester in The Exchange.”
Speakers will include employers, faculty, students and alumni, and will cover a wide variety of topics, including:
“The mission of The Exchange is to inspire and enable College of Business students to broaden their perspective and explore their potential outside of the classroom. It will prepare students with the knowledge, skills and abilities needed for their first job and as future leaders in the communities they serve,” said Tiffany Hughes, senior director of community & corporate engagement.
