Oklahoma City University Students to Attend World Business Forum
OKLAHOMA CITY— Oklahoma City University students and faculty will debate global business issues next month at the 2009 World Business Forum in New York City. OCU’s Meinders School of Business is hosting a delegation of more than 65 students, faculty and community business leaders at the forum, set for Oct. 6 and 7 at Radio City Music Hall. The conference brings together the world’s leading business, political and academic figures to discuss the most critical issues of the day, and promotes effective management, ethical leadership and social responsibility. Speakers at this year’s forum include former President Bill Clinton, 2008 Nobel Prize for Economics winner Paul Krugman, Co-founder and Managing Director of the Carlyle Group David Rubenstein and former General Electric CEO Jack Welch. Students and faculty from the Meinders School of Business have attended the World Business Forum for the last four years. “In addition to hearing individuals who are considered the best in their fields, this year’s delegation of students will also have the unique opportunity to have a private meeting with some of the senior management of Goldman Sachs at their headquarters in the financial district of New York City,” said Business School Dean Vince Orza. “Students attending the World Business Forum are selected based on recommendations by faculty. The Meinders School provides its students a more realistic mix of theory and practice as part of its graduate and undergraduate education. We believe these events provide our students a better, broader, more realistic education and prepare them for significant leadership roles as they pursue their careers.”
