CBA Executive Speakers Series

The College of Business Administration hosts the Executive Speaker Series in the fall and spring semesters. The CBA invites leading experts to start a dialogue with students and the community about important issues of the day.

The College has also joined a distinguished list of partners who actively support the Sacramento Speaker Series. Providing an open forum for the exchange of ideas, opinions and perspectives, this series host’s one lecture a month from October to May of each year. Speakers represent a wide range of subjects and have included Pulitzer Prize winners and Nobel Peace Prize laureates, world leaders, statesmen, distinguished journalist and authors, and other celebrated personalities.
