Past Speakers

Learning from Business Professionals

Each year the Gerstacker Institute hosts business leaders who deliver speeches and interact with students. These speakers come from all areas of business and often have strong ties with the Albion College community. Besides providing presentations and career advice for their individual fields, most speakers also reserve time to meet with students in a more personal setting.

Students often meet with visiting professionals in a small group or on a one-to-one basis. These discussions offer great networking opportunities for students interested in internships seeking advice.

Here are some of our recent speakers:
