Kent State University Introduces New Firestone Lecture Series in Finance
Kent State’s College of Business Administration is proud to introduce the Firestone Lecture Series in Finance with the inaugural presentation scheduled for Friday, September 18th.
The series is sponsored by the college’s finance department; the presentations will be lecture based and research oriented. The department’s goal is to feature innovative finance research that provides real-world industry applications.
Kent State will be working with other area universities including Youngstown State, Case Western Reserve, Akron and Cleveland State to showcase research in their institution and provide timely financial information that affects Northeast Ohio and beyond.
The lecture series is being funded by a generous gift from the Bridgestone Trust Fund, formerly known as the Firestone Trust Fund, dedicated to advancing financial education through research and innovative teaching.
