Steve Wozniak to Speak at USF Muma College of Business


An electrical engineer, programmer, entrepreneur, philanthropist and the driving engineering force behind Apple, Steve Wozniak will be the Thought Leader Series’ inaugural speaker at USF on February 20.

The Thought Leader Series was established to draw nationally recognized speakers, innovators, idea generators, entrepreneurs, philanthropists, authors and “turn-around artists” in business and industry.

As part of a conversation with USF Muma College of Business Dean Moez Limayem, Wozniak will discuss everything from the need for entrepreneurship in technology companies to business issues in the age of technology. He is also expected to talk about the ways big data and analytics can be used to foster innovation and creativity.

“Having Steve as our inaugural guest sets the standard for future speakers in this series. His talk here benefits everyone: USF, the Muma College of Business, the Tampa Bay area – currently poised to become a technology hub – and Steve, who can see firsthand the fresh analytical approaches we are implementing into our business curriculum.” – Moez Limayem, Dean of USF Muma College of Business

At the conclusion of the event, Wozniak will respond to a limited number of audience questions submitted via Twitter using the event hashtag: #USFMumaTLS.
