This is a unique opportunity for current students and graduates of Mays Business School to enhance their knowledge, network with fellow current and former students, and reconnect with Texas A&M and Mays.

Guests at last year’s inaugural SLS said it provided solid takeaways for them to implement, and they have been eager for a repeat. “With Texas A&M moving into the SEC and the excitement surrounding the “100-Year Decision,’ we felt this would provide an ideal case study for long term business strategy,'” explains Joshua Ellison, alumni relations coordinator at Mays Business School. “The integration of the two topics seemed only too perfect: explain the business decisions behind the SEC move and fulfill the desire for additional practical business solutions.”
