October 31, 2012 – Eighty-two students from the King’s College, William G. McGowan School of Business participated in the Eighth Annual McGowan School of Business Forum held recently at the Union League of Philadelphia.
The Forum, which is held on a rotating basis in New York City, Philadelphia, and Wilkes-Barre, provided the students mentoring and networking opportunities with 35 King’s alumni and other professionals, followed by a dinner and a presentation on ethics and social responsibility.
This year’s keynote speaker was Rev. James M. Lies, C.S.C., Ph.D., vice president for mission and associate professor of psychology at Stonehill College in Easton, Mass. Prior to joining Stonehill College, Fr. Lies served as executive director of the Garaventa Center for Catholic Intellectual Life and American Culture and assistant professor of psychology at the University of Portland.
Like King’s, Stonehill College and the University of Portland are educational institutions sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
The Forum is underwritten by, among others, the William G. McGowan Charitable Fund, Inc., and corporate sponsors including Hahnemann University Hospital, pwc (PricewaterhouseCoopers), CohnReznick , and IBM. In addition, students received generous individual sponsorships from alumni and friends of King’s College.
