Since 1989, the Institute for International Business has hosted the International Executive Roundtable lecture series for university students, staff, faculty, and members of the international business community. These events serve as a forum in which executives and government officials meet with university faculty, staff, and students to discuss timely issues in international business. They also educate students, staff, and faculty about international business practices and provide exposure to the experiences of executives in the global marketplace. International Executive Roundtables allow lecturers to speak on real world scenarios and pass valuable research insights on to faculty.
The IIB designates featured lectures by renowned speakers as distinguished lectures: Robert Reynolds Distinguished Lecture (led and hosted by CU Denver's Business School), The Greg and Carol Jemal-Gibson Distinguished Lecture, and the Burton Boothby Distinguished Lecture.
