Conferences and Seminars
The University of Miami School of Business is a thought leader, influencing business practice through leading-edge faculty research and engagement with the business community. Many of our faculty members sit on the editorial boards and serve or have served as editors, guest editors, advisory editors, associate editors and referees of leading journals.
The School’s faculty members also participate in leading business conferences as keynote speakers and conference chairs, serve as officers for professional associations, consult for major corporations, and provide pro bono work for nonprofit organizations.
The school regularly organizes and hosts business forums ranging from our economics, finance and management seminar series to impact conferences which bring together business leaders for forward-thinking discussions on the issues affecting management today.
In January 2011, the School hosted the second University of Miami Global Business Forum, which brought together some of the world’s most influential thought leaders for two days of forward-thinking discussion on The Business of Health Care: Defining the Future, the theme of the conference.
Other such forums include the University of Miami Real Estate Impact Conference, held in February 2012. This conference, headlined by industry titan Sam Zell, brought together real estate investment, finance, development and design leaders for in-depth disussion on how global capital and ingenuity are reshaping urban spaces.
