Bi-Weekly Speaker Series: Student Finances

Asalam alaikum everyone,

We are pleased to invite to our bi-weekly speaker series which will be tomorrow Inshaa Allah. Our next lecture will be presented by Dr. Adel and the topic of discussion is managing student finances, financial resources, and how to make money while you are studying. The lecture will be 30 minutes followed by a 15 minute Q&A session. So please bring any questions you have!

This talk will address the notion of entrepreneurship from cultural/religion
perspective and what it means for our daily lives. How to be productive, innovative,caring, leader and successful. Being entrepreneur does only mean to start a new business, but how to change the world around you. The first requirement for being an entrepreneur is to understand your purpose, call and ambitions. Then, plan and plan well.

Dr. Adel Guitouni is an award-winning associate professor of management sciences, operations research and decision support systems at the Gustavson School of Business.

Since 2011, on behalf of the business school, Adel has actively engaged in several educational activities that support the democratic transition and socioeconomic development in the MENA region (i.e., Tunisia and Libya) from providing coaching sessions to senior government officials to obtaining grant funding to develop the country’s leadership capacity. In 2014 in partnership with Tunisian higher education institutions, he established a not-for-profit non-governmental organization dedicated to fostering entrepreneurship development and innovation.

The talk will be in room C122  in the David Strong Building from 5:30pm to 6:15 pm.

We look forward to see you all
