2018 Business Forecast Series: Driving Innovation

For the sixth consecutive year, the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas collaborate to present a business forecast and networking event for alumni and the general business community. Leading the discussion will be a Federal Reserve Bank economist and executives from the key industry sectors driving Texas’ economy.

From their unique vantage point, speakers will share how they drive innovation in their industry—especially regarding trends, opportunities, and challenges. Federal Reserve economists will answer your questions about the 2018 economy, both in Texas and nationally. CPE credit is available.
