Colloquium Brown Bag

The Erb Institute Colloquium Brown Bag is an important part of the scholarly life of the Institute.  The Colloquium is a monthly informal research seminar featuring the latest insights and state of the art knowledge in the broad field of sustainable enterprise. Faculty spanning the many disciplines relevant to sustainable business enterprise (Strategy, Organizational Theory, Operations, Accounting, Finance, Marketing, Law, Political Science, Public Policy, Economics and others) from both within U-M and other leading Institutions present and discuss their work in an interdisciplinary and interactive framework. The general structure of the seminar allows the speaker 45-60 minutes followed by general discussion. In our experience, the Colloquium proves to be a valuable source of new ideas for faculty, graduate students and practitioners alike.
