Guest Speakers

Las Vegas is an entrepreneurial city that invents new business models, a convention city where new products and services are introduced, and a destination city that everyone comes to visit. There is a lot to talk about in Las Vegas and we invite many visitors to the EMBA program every year to discuss the latest happenings or next big thing that will impact business. This also gives our students the opportunity to network with community leaders involved in a wide range of projects. Some of our recent visitors include:
