Guest Speaker Request

If you would like to add or diversify the guest speakers engaged in your course(s), please complete this form to provide course details and the expertise and/or experience areas you are seeking through a guest speaker.  Requests are desired at least 4 weeks prior to the preferred guest speaking time frame.  John Knapp will work with Business Career Center and University Advancement colleagues to respond to requests within 1-2 weeks. 

Guest Speaker Hospitality

To provide a consistent hospitality experience for COBA guests, if you share your guest speaker information at least one week in advance, we can provide a gift and parking voucher for campus guests and a thank-you email from the Dean to on-campus and virtual guest speakers. Please use this form to submit guest speaker information.

Campus Guest Speaker Gift Pick-Up: Speaker gift packages will be ready by noon on the Friday prior to your presentation date.  Please visit the GSM/Business Career Center greeting desk in DS 275 Monday-Friday between 7:15am and 4:30pm.

Additional Speakers: Communicate additions through the online form.  

Changes or Cancellations: Please inform John Knapp of speaker changes or cancellations.

Presentation Follow-Up: Twice monthly, John will email faculty with presentations during the prior week to confirm that the presentation occurred and there weren’t any last-minute changes. This is necessary to prevent the Dean from sending thank-you emails to professionals who did not visit Marquette on the submitted date.

Student Publicity

In spring 2019, the Business Career Center newsletter grew into BizNews - a college-wide undergraduate weekly email.  Modeled after MU NewsBriefs (or Marquette Today), Laura Philbin and Meghann Witthoft create a weekly email to inform and engage students about deadlines, announcements, events, involvement opportunities and other newsworthy items.  Within the fall and spring semesters, students, faculty and staff may submit news item requests through the online submission form.  Examples of events to submit include application-based program deadlines (AIM, banking), case competition opportunities, speaker events, etc.

PowerPoint Slides: Business Career Center staff will continue to publicize upcoming events through PPT slides shared with faculty each Friday. Thank you for presenting these to your classes and/or posting to D2L.

Handshake & Recruiting Ethics

In alignment with our professional ethics, Business Career Center staff seek to ensure that students have equal access to information about job and internship opportunities.  When employers post to Handshake, this equity is achieved. 

It is very efficient for employers to post to Handshake.  Over 700 colleges and universities use Handshake, so most employers (including all fortune 500 companies) have an account on the system already.  When you receive outreach from employers:

If employers request that you recommend individual students, please see the candidate referral guidelines developed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers.

Student Organization Support

To provide a consistent hospitality experience for College of Business Administration guests and to promote student organization events, if your student organization shares guest speaker information at least one week in advance, the Business Career Center will be happy to provide hospitality items - a small College of Business Administration branded gift, “chaser tickets” for free parking in our parking structures and a thank you email from the Dean.  Please follow these next steps:

  1. Share your speaker information using this hospitality formPlease share guest speaker information at least one week in advance of your meeting date.  This timing will enable Business Career Center staff to promote your speaker through Handshake and the BizNews newsletter.
  2. Speaker Gift Pick-Up: Business Career Center staff will have speaker gift packages ready by noon on the Friday prior to your speaker’s visit.  Please visit the BCC/GSM greeting desk in DS 275 Monday-Thursday between 7:15am and 5:30pm and on Friday between 7:15am-4:30pm to pick up your items.
