What is the Executive Forum?

The Executive Forum of Mercer University, presented by BB&T, is a corporate and community outreach program of the Eugene W. Stetson School of Business and Economics and the Office of University Advancement. A resource for working professionals in Macon and Atlanta, the Forum provides an opportunity for business and organization leaders to hear from some of the country's most sought-after speakers, while interacting with other business leaders.

The Executive Forum's mission is to:

  • Present an annual series of high-quality management, leadership and current event seminars targeted to the needs of the Forum membership.
  • Promote the University within the Forum membership and to the business community.
  • Provide members with business networking opportunities, analysis on national/international events, new business trends and other critical business topics (economics, healthcare, services, government, industry).
