The annual McGowan Symposium on Business Leadership & Ethics is the springboard to McGowan’s yearlong Fellows program. At the symposium, the McGowan community welcomes our new Fellows as they delve into meaningful conversations with peers, alumni, recognized leaders in business, government, and academia, as well as with thought leaders from outside their own MBA programs. In addition, the weekend includes a half-day retreat for alums, sponsored by the McGowan Fund.
Symposia focus on specific issues, always with an eye to the intersection of current trends in ethical leadership and decision-making.
