Duke Financial Economics Center

Lunch & Learn Series

The Lunch & Learn program is designed for Duke alumni and supporters to engage with a select group of students over an informal lunch. The lunches typically run from 12:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. For the first 20 - 30 minutes, the host discusses of his or her career, firm, and industry. The remainder of the time is allotted for a spirited Q&A with the students.  

John Caccavale, executive director of the DFE, attends each lunch to introduce the host.
