In addition to Dr. Gibbs and her team at Morehouse College, Dr. Montressa Washington, assistant professor of management at Shenandoah University and director-at-large for USASBE, is coordinating an exciting group of speakers at the symposium.

“USASBE is continuously motivated to expand the topics and opportunities for students in search of the best entrepreneurship education,” said Julienne Shields, CEO of USASBE. “We’re pleased to partner with Morehouse College—an institution so dedicated to positively impacting student lives—to bring this unique symposium together.”
