Do you find that your students need help making presentations? Why not have them sign up for this workshop on preparing oral presentations? March 15, 5:30pm – 6:30pm EST. Open to all undergrads. 

Are you looking for business related readings that are topical, timely, and brief? Look no further than MSU’s own GlobalEdge Blog. There are also many other opportunities freely available on that website including Podcasts from each blog entry where your students can listen while reading.
