Distinguished Speaker Series

Our Distinguished Speaker Series (DSS) has contributed to broadening the dynamic educational experience of Merage School students and the community by bringing influential leaders to campus, encouraging thought-provoking conversations and the exchange of ideas. Through DSS-sponsored lectures and collaborations, we strive to achieve our mission of being at the forefront of thought-leadership and academic excellence.

Our enviable list of distinguished speakers comes from across the globe, and through the sharing of their experiences and stories, they challenge our newest generation to make a difference in society and business. The series highlights leadership perspectives, ethical frameworks, decision-making processes, and insights of top business leaders from different industries. This is also a great opportunity to network with approximately 300 corporate professionals, community leaders, students, faculty members and campus staff.

Your support of the UCI Merage School Fund allows us to continue to provide exceptional speaker programming such as the Distinguished Speaker Series. Give Now!
