Business Leaders Seminar provides networking opportunities for high school students at Lewis University

Published: November 11, 2013.

The Lewis University College of Business recently hosted its third annual Business Leaders Seminar, which provided more than 200 high school students with information about the different areas of business. Those areas included accounting, business administration, computer information systems, economics, finance, information security, international business, marketing and social media marketing.

The event was a collaborative effort with nine high schools from the surrounding area: Reavis High School in Burbank, Bolingbrook High School, Hinsdale South High School, Romeoville High School, Joliet Central High School, Lockport Township High School, Plainfield South High School, West Leyden High School in Northlake, and East Leyden High School in Franklin Park.

During the seminar, three panel discussions presented topics in business. The panelists were an insightful group ranging from CEOs, presidents, vice presidents, owners of businesses and Lewis University alumni.

Students learned more about business as a wide-ranging field, full of important and exciting careers. Students enjoyed networking and a campus tour.
