The VIP Distinguished Speakers Series has been around for over a decade as an opportunity for Fortune 500 C-level Executives to visit McCombs to share their Views, Insights, and Perspectives. VIP also gives students the opportunity to ask these guests questions. The VIP Speaker Series is the official McCombs School of Business Lecture Series.

The next event in the speaker series is Tuesday, March 1, 2016 from 5:30 – 6:30 p.m. in the Texas Union Theater. Adena Friedman, Forbes’ 39th most powerful woman in the world, has been at Nasdaq since 1993, when she came on as an intern! While she left for a short while to serve as CFO of The Carlyle Group, she returned to Nasdaq in 2014 to serve as their President and COO.

According to Fox Business, “Friedman handles a wide swath of Nasdaq’s business, including the financial responsibility for the company’s listing and information services as well as its technology solutions. Last year, those divisions brought in revenues of $1.25 billion, according to a regulatory filing, which accounts for 60.6% of the firm’s sales.”

This event is open to all UT students regardless of major or degree program.
