Gloria Preece, director of IU Kokomo's M.B.A. program, said the program is an excellent way for students and faculty to engage with the area business community.
"This is a great opportunity for our talented students to network with area professionals," she said. "It's also a way for us to show off our campus and students to the community, and let them see all the great things we are doing here."
The event begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday, September 11, in Alumni Hall with the Business After Hours, in conjunction with the Greater Kokomo Chamber of Commerce. Refreshments will be served during this time.
At 5:30 p.m., Maurer will give a 45-minute presentation in Kresge Auditorium, about his new book, "Ten Essential Principles of Entrepreneurship You Never Learned in School." He will also answer questions from audience members.

His career has spanned numerous industries, including cable television, film production, radio broadcasting, newspaper publishing, real estate, and banking. The Indiana University Maurer School of Law is named in his honor.
