Spark Symposium is held every two years. Spark 2016 dates to be released soon.
It is one thing to achieve excellence; it is quite another to be able to coach others and guide them to discover their potential. It is our pleasure to introduce you to our biennial event SPARK…an opportunity to experience the teachings and insights from some very bright stars. The collection of speakers brings great diversity in expertise, business opportunities and challenges, successes and failures, exceptional leaders, and interesting, uncommon industries. The Ole Miss MBA Program believes that engaging top business leaders with our talented students, alumni and faculty in an intimate speaker's forum will indeed light many sparks!
SPARK is a day where sixty professionals and sixty Ole Miss MBA students come together to learn from visionaries. Take a fast paced day featuring cutting edge ideas and perspectives, throw in the energy and optimism of our MBA students and alumni, add some famous Ole Miss hospitality—you get the picture! The SPARK Symposium is a great day, and you can experience it here.
