The Culverhouse College of Commerce International Business Symposium on February 12 and 13 was designed to expose students to a wide and diverse array of voices in global business. See the schedule of events for the International Business Symposium.

The symposium included panel discussions with representatives from companies such as BMW, Protective Life Corporation, Microsoft, The Carlyle Group, and AITC. Joining the symposium for a special Lowder Lecture Series talk was Ken Tidwell, Managing Director of The Carlye Group's Latin America operations. A Culverhouse grad, Mr. Tidwell provided an expansive overview into how he came to embrace working outside the United States and answered student questions about how different cultures approach business.
