These breakout sessions are designed to provide our graduate business students with industry or functional knowledge of the topic you are speaking on. Discussion topics can include an introduction into specific careers related to an industry and/or function, a "state of the industry today" discussion, what it takes to be successful in a specific field or industry, and specific examples of how you have achieved success in your career up to this point. Our goal of these sessions is to equip our students with the core knowledge, tips, and insights about industries and/or career functions that are of interest to them. A GBCS team member or GBCS Student Ambassador will be facilitating the Q&A session throughout your time in this session.
The structure of your discussion should be open-ended and encourage back and forth Q&A between yourself and the students. There is no need for a Power Point presentation (nor do we have the equipment to handle this in these sessions). We highly encourage our students to ask questions and become involved in the discussion so that it is an interactive session for everyone involved. We ask that you encourage them as well during your session to be interactive within the discussion. The flow of this session and topics/ideas for discussion can include:
