Smith School Business Summit

The fifth annual Smith School Business Summit (SSBS) will be held on Friday, October 28, 2016, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel - 2500 Calvert Street, N.W., in Washington, D.C. 20008.

SSBS will continue its tradition of bringing together students, business leaders, faculty and alumni in a mini-conference style event to share insights on current trends and strategies in the business world. The forum presents a great opportunity to exchange thought leadership between Smith and the regional business community.

Each year, the event kicks off with a keynote address, followed by a series of panel discussions moderated by Smith School faculty on a variety of relevant topics. The day concludes with a catered networking reception.

Check back later this summer for the detailed agenda and online registration.
