“I’m not a business man, I’m a business, man,” is just some of the advice we expect Jay Z to give when he stops by the Harvard Business School this winter.
The hip-hop icon and entrepreneur will be joining Alicia Keys, American Express CEO Kenneth Chenault, and former governor Deval Patrick as the keynote speakers for the African-American Student Union’s 44th Annual H. Naylor Fitzhugh Conference. The event, dubbed “Transcend: Redefining Expectations,” will take place at the HBS Soldiers Field campus February 5-7.
According to the group’s website, this year’s conference aims to “celebrate African-American achievements, inspire many new milestones, and provide a forum for attendees to take on issues facing our community.” Topics ranging from expanding the definition of diversity to how the business community can take on social injustice will be the main focus of the event.
In addition to the conference, there will also be an after party and a jazz brunch at Darryl’s Corner Bar & Kitchen that fans can attend.
Tickets to the H. Naylor Fitzhugh Conference as well as the additional festivities are available now at aasuconference2016.eventbrite.com.
