About the Distinguished Speaker Series

Since 1984, the Dean's Office of The Fuqua School of Business has hosted the Distinguished Speaker Series, bringing a variety of corporate leaders to Duke's campus. The speakers provide significant educational enrichment that is a natural complement to the school's curriculum.

The objective of the series is two-fold. It brings high-profile corporate leaders to one of the world's leading business schools to share their insights on current business issues and corporate strategies. The program also builds and strengthens the relationship between Fuqua and the world's leading corporations.

The Distinguished Speaker Series is supported by Dean Bill Boulding, and the series is open to the Duke University community.

The Distinguished Speaker Series Fellowship is responsible for speaker selection and invitation as well as coordinating, participating in, and promoting speaker events.
