Virtual Expert Network Office Hours

To support the LI business community in this pandemic, the industry partners and faculty members of College of Business have joined forces to offer virtual office hours and complimentary consultation. These sessions aim to provide business leaders the tools that could help them tackle ongoing business challenges. Based on recent national surveys, we identified the major business challenges for our experts to self-organize around these issues. We hope our interdisciplinary task force would help you to effectively respond to these unprecedented circumstances.

Please also note that the information and any benefit you may obtain from this site and office hours is for your general use under your own discretion and is not intended to be and does not constitute legal advice. We will keep details of your office hours confidential unless given permission by you to share it with others.
