Seminars

Junior Seminars

Junior Seminars consist of a series of speakers and symposia scheduled throughout the junior year that focus on building leadership, communications, career development, business computing, and academic skills. Seminars offered vary by semester and include sessions on career management, business research (through the library), leadership, computing technology, academic skills and professional development.

Senior Seminars

Senior Seminars are designed to give students professional and industry-specific knowledge that falls outside the scope of traditional BBA courses.

Most seminars are taught by industry professionals and provide unique insights from a practitioner's point of view. BBA students enroll in one senior seminar in each of the final two semesters of enrollment at Emory. Each seminar meets 5 times. Seminars offered vary by year. Recently offered seminars include:
