Executive Lectures Series

College of Business Executive Lecture Series has provided Alfaisal University students and guests from the business community and government agencies the opportunity to learn from some of the country's leading executives as they talk about their careers and leadership experiences.

College of Business sponsors the weekly Executive Lecture Series as a way to bridge the gap between the world of leadership and business education.

Students in the College of Business enroll in the Executive Lecture Series as part of their business core course and mostly in the junior or senior year. All lectures are free and open to the public.
