The Learn from Leaders series is one of the ways Lakeland’s Business Management program offers value-added experiences for students and the community. The opportunity to interact with local leaders in business management, human resources and entrepreneurship provides students and community members the chance to learn from the best, ask questions and gain invaluable insight into the business world. For over three decades, business leaders from Northeast Ohio's prominent companies and institutions have shared their success stories, strategies, business outlooks and career opportunities with Lakeland students and the general public through this open interview forum, formerly known as the Management Lecture Series.
