Meet the CEO


The University of Miami Alumni Association hosts a tour of programs called Meet the CEO featuring alumni leaders, highlighting the immense talent of the ’Cane network. Each Meet the CEO event features an outstanding alumnus in conversation with an alumnus who is a professional journalist in his or her city. These exchanges provide guests with insight into how each alumnus’ experiences at the U inspired and influenced their life choices and careers. As well as provide access to contemporary thinking in business and leadership by its foremost practitioners – the alumni whose innovation, entrepreneurship, and leadership have fundamentally altered the way business and leadership is viewed. All alumni, parents, and friends, are welcome to attend.
