Mercy Business Leadership Conference

Detroit Mercy's College of Business Administration hosted the first Mercy Business Leadership Conference in June of 2017, bringing together representatives of the business programs at Mercy college and universities from across the United States.

The Mercy business leaders met to share best practices and collaborate on areas of mutual concern and interest.  Sessions covered: the role of the Mercy charism in the business curriculum; recruitment and retention of students to Mercy business programs; collaboration via online courses; collaboration via study abroad and international service trips; social entrepreneurship as a Mercy business initiative; and collaboration on extracurricular activities and clubs. 

Future meetings are being planned, with the 2018 conference scheduled for Salve Regina University.
