He will speak on the topic of "Entrepreneurship and the Undergraduate Experience."
"In our flattened global economy, economic competitiveness will increasingly drive our ability to create value for individuals, organizations and societies. The innovation that is at the core of the entrepreneurial process links competitiveness to the sustainable development of well-being at all levels. Undergraduate education is an ideal context in which the thought process and expansive orientation characteristic of entrepreneurship can be fostered," said Trebar.
