Seminars, Workshops, and Special Events

Weekly Seminars are facilitated by top industry leaders, experienced business managers, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and small-business owners who expose MEM students to different aspects of business and industry. Duke's unique Workshop Series brings in experts who introduce students to business skills not covered in traditional courses. Topics are selected through input from industry, program administrators, and students. Topics have included teamwork, negotiation, business etiquette, communication, and leadership.

Special Events like the MEM Night with Industry bring together industry representatives and students in a relaxed setting where students learn more about careers in various industries, network, and identify what companies look for in new hires. Representatives lead small roundtables on their industry, with a reception and dinner following.
