Theme: The conference theme is "Collegiate Outcomes and Industry Expectations." As business educators we think we know what students need to successfully prepare for a professional career. However as the needs of business change with advancing technology, are we really keeping up? The conference theme looks to examine how expectations in industry align with current collegiate outcomes.
