Each semester, Development and Alumni Relations partners with the Lubin School of Business to put together a series of roundtable discussions between alumni and current students. This event series supports Lubin's mission of bringing the boardroom into the classroom and providing our students with active learning opportunities. Led by Dean Singleton and a group of Lubin's high academic standing students, the series is held online via Zoom. Alumni share their experiences since graduating Pace, and give industry advice for students. These roundtable discussions provide an opportunity for students to learn and ask questions, as well as provide alumni with an impactful and engaging experience.
What students are saying about the Dean's Roundtable:
“One of the best event formats for Lubin students.”
“So interesting and cool to meet the Co-CEO of Century 21!”
“The Roundtable was very insightful and the perfect opportunity for students to meet with highly successful alumni.”
“The roundtable initiative was wonderful.”
“This is so amazing and insightful.”
“Keep it going!”
