Business Edge Briefings

​Business Edge Briefings are a series of panel discussions especially for organizational leaders and business owners. Discussions are designed to highlight cutting-edge strategies and techniques for businesses to be resilient and competitive in domestic and global business environments. Hosted by the Institute for Leadership (ILS) of the Barowsky School of Business and in partnership with the North Bay Leadership Council, the Briefings seek to ignite innovation, inspire creativity and ultimately increase profits and productivity.​

The Business Edge Briefing series also brings successful business professionals to Dominican to share their knowledge and experience with students, alumni, faculty and staff and the larger Bay Area community. As our professors strive to bridge academic theory with real world experience and learning, the Business Edge Briefing series provides a consistent tool for strengthening the application of theory in the business world.
