Our world is constantly changing, and business as a force for good must continually evolve to meet the changing needs of this changing world. The D'Amore-McKim School of Business faculty community is at the forefront of scholarship that equips current and future business leaders to solve pressing problems with significant societal impact. 

As part of our centennial celebration, we invite you to join us as we highlight 100 years of rigorous, relevant, and timely research with a particular focus on three areas of key strategic importance: Entrepreneurship and Innovation, Fintech and Data Analytics, and International Business. Three faculty panels comprised of some of our top experts will discuss each of these important research areas, including their importance to society and Northeastern University, and there will be time for questions from audience members.

Registration is required for in-person attendance, and space will be limited. Lunch will be provided. While we strongly encourage in-person attendance to get the most from the opportunity to network, a live stream will be available so our global network can participate.

Please consider joining us to learn more about our experts, their impactful research, and ways you can partner with our faculty around these important global business topics.
