Symposium Format 

Symposium is a three-day, virtual career-development event where students and employers have the opportunity to make meaningful connections and grow professionally. The event is broken into three main components: Diversity Night, Platinum Night, and the Main event which is taking place from September 9th-11th, 2020.

Diversity Night

The Diversity Night allows students to meet with company sponsors before the main event commences. Historically underrepresented students engage with representatives and hear from a speaker on diversity.  

Platinum Night

Platinum Night is an exclusive networking opportunity only available to a select number of exceptional students chosen by Platinum Sponsors. Top performing students and company representatives are able to build personal connections and interact in a more intimate setting with one another. 

Symposium Main Event

The main event consists of interactive programming sessions such as investment banking, marketing, women in business, etc. for students and company representatives in the morning. The day concludes with virtual networking with the best and brightest students from Kenan-Flagler
