CSOM to Hold Its First `Business Day' Friday

Carroll School of Management undergraduates and their families will get an overview of the evolving business education field when the school hosts its first "Business Day" tomorrow, April 26.

The event, which organizers Adj. Lect. Maria Sanella and Rev. William C. McInnes, SJ, say is expected to be an annual fixture, will include a welcome by CSOM Dean Helen Frame Peters, faculty and student panel presentations, group discussions and a luncheon. The day begins with registration and a coffee reception at 9 a.m. in the Fulton Hall Honors Library.

"The great topic in business today is the 'stakeholders,'" said Fr. McInnes, who is moderator of the Boston College chapter of the national Jesuit honor society Alpha Sigma Nu. "We have included all the constituents involved in business education.

"We want to get people together in this common enterprise," he said. "The parents want to be included too, and we want to show them what is going on in the field."

CSOM faculty members Prof. William R. Torbert of the Organization Studies department, Business Law Asst. Prof. Stephanie Greene and Marketing Asst. Prof. Michael Brady will discuss current trends in business education, while freshmen Jane Balas and Anthony Tomaro and senior Meagan Kenny will participate in sessions on intergenerational communication.

The luncheon, to be held at 12:15 p.m. in the Heights Room of the Lower Campus Dining Facility, will feature Director of Alumni Career Services Dominic DeLeo, who will speak on career opportunities in the business field.

CSOM students and their parents are welcome to attend all events.
