Centennial Virtual Speaker Series

Celebrating 100 Years of Business Education at Fordham University

A lot has changed since we took New York City by storm in 1920, and even since we started celebrating our centennial. But there’s one thing that hasn’t changed at all: our irrepressible urge to better both ourselves and the world of business.

Through the support of alumni, parents, and friends, the Centennial Campaign will position the Gabelli School of Business to pioneer and disseminate sustainable practices throughout the global business arena, fueling the creation of ideas, products, services, and solutions that carry the world toward a promising future.

A silver lining of our shift to online programming means that Fordham University alumni, students, parents, and community partners can access most of our webinars from wherever they are. We hope you will join us as we celebrate 100 years of business education at Fordham with these special guests.

Please take a minute to learn more about the Centennial Campaign and consider a contribution. Your gift to the Gabelli Centennial Campaign will contribute to the success of Cura Personalis | For Every Fordham Student, the University’s $350 million fundraising campaign to enhance the entire student experience.
