University of Tulsa Friends of Finance

The mission of Friends of Finance is to help gain national prominence for The University of Tulsa School of Finance, Operations Management and International Business educational programs, students, alumni and faculty.

Friends of Finance is an organization of business professionals, TU alumni, and supporters of the TU College of Business Administration. Members share a passion for business--particularly finance and operations management--and are committed to helping TU gain national prominence in these areas. In addition, Friends of Finance provides a forum where business professionals, many of them TU alumni, can network and share perspectives. Eight times a year, our Executive Speaker series brings leading executives to the TU campus to share their knowledge and explore important business issues. Recent speakers include Jamie Dimon, Chairman and CEO, Bank One; Richard Fuld, Jr., CEO, Lehman Brothers, Inc.; Diana Ferguson, SVP, Sara Lee Corporation; Steve Malcolm, Chairman, President, and CEO, Williams; Lee Scott, President and CEO, Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.; Kenneth Lewis, President, Bank of America.
