Boca Raton, FL —It's one thing to study the history of successful business people. It's another to have them share their stories in person and enjoy the opportunity to ask about their secrets to success.

On Saturday, October 6, 2007, executive MBA students at Florida Atlantic University's Barry Kaye College of Business will have the opportunity to learn from CareersUSA founder and Chief Executive Officer Marilyn J. Ounjian.

Magazine as "One of America's Fastest Growing Companies. "In Florida Ounjian has enjoyed accolades that include the South Florida Business Journal's 2005 Business Woman and Business of the Year awards, and being a regional finalist for Ernst & Young's 2007 Entrepreneur of the Year.

Ounjian is looking forward to speaking to the students, because, she says, "I feel it's important for the business community to set an example and to inspire others to succeed."

To ensure that students have the opportunity to hear success stories and receive business advice from some of the areas most successful entrepreneurs and business executives, Neuman Pollack, Ph.D., director of executive relations for the Barry Kaye College of Business, utilizes his own personal list which he has acquired over the years, along with volunteers, he says.
