The BRIDGE Talks are a professional development series open to all students. These events feature a keynote speaker, or a panel of thought leaders in a particular subject area paired with a discussion led by a faculty member with research and expertise in that discipline. Students learn about both the academic and industry-focused context for that specific topic. This is followed by a workshop where students get to apply their learning in a meaningful way. The BRIDGE Talks promote skill building in critical areas of focus such as digital marketing, data analytics, financial analysis, entrepreneurship and corporate innovation.
