"As we work to rebuild public trust and confidence in the economy and markets, it is important to exchange thoughts and ideas with communities and constituents across America. Rice University and Houston present an ideal platform for the public, private and academic sectors to join together to share perspectives on the economy, regulation and markets that impact our lives today and in the future."

"It meant so much to our students to have access to and hear directly from these esteemed corporate leaders about the experiences they have had. More important still, our students had the opportunity to discuss the future of business, the future in which they will lead."
