By George Vlahakis, Kelley School of Business
The Indiana University Kelley School of Business will present its 2021 economic forecasts for the nation, financial markets, Indiana and communities across the state through a series of live and mostly free presentations delivered via Zoom. It will begin Monday, Nov. 9, with a presentation featuring a focus on Indianapolis and Central Indiana.
Since 1972, Kelley School faculty have presented their annual Business Outlook forecast around the state, usually joined by a local panelist. While they won’t be physically traveling across the state, the school and its Indiana Business Research Center will still host 10 regional events virtually.
Also new this year will be the addition at several locations of an area “C-suite” member of the business community to offer perspectives and responses to the forecast. Michael Huber, president and CEO of the 2,000 member Indy Chamber and a Kelley MBA alumnus, will participate at the kickoff event.
All Business Outlook Virtual Tour presentations will be open to the public, but registration is required. The initial Indianapolis presentation will begin at noon Nov. 9.
The compete tour calendar is available in an online news release.
