Professors for a Day are invited to speak to upper level undergraduate and MBA students in policy and strategy courses. That person opens the session with a topic that is contemporary and relevant to his or her organization, explains the situation and its impact on the organization's business model, shares the company's approach to resolution, and invites student input and questions.
