GWINNETT – NORTH FULTON

Gwinnett Tech’s Executive Lecture Series will host a speaker from the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta for its second event of the year, presenting Sherilyn Narker, economic and financial education specialist, on Wed., March 4, from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Busbee Center on campus. The event is free and open to the public.

Narker will speak about the organization of the Federal Reserve, the nation’s central banking system, and topics of interest surrounding the financial industry.

The college’s new Executive Lecture Series is hosted by the Business and Finance Division. “We’re bringing in executive-level managers to speak primarily about what’s going on in the business world,” said Jermaine Whirl, dean of business and art & design.

This semester, the focus of the series is on the financial markets. In February, representatives from the Securities and Exchange Commission spoke on campus.

The series is predominantly aimed at students in marketing, accounting, hotel, restaurant and tourism management, and any discipline in business management. All lectures are free and open to all faculty members, staff and students – and the general public.

The goal of the series is to educate and connect students to business enterprises. Students will also learn about career opportunities and possible internships from prominent institutions in the financial sector.

“Opening the doors, leveraging our relationship with these organizations and creating networks is what we’re trying to do,” said Whirl.

Gwinnett Tech offers associate degrees in Business Administrative Technology, Accounting, Marketing Management, Hotel, Restaurant and Tourism Management, and Business Management, plus a host of certificate and diploma options that prepare students for various financial, business, marketing, entrepreneurial and administrative careers.
