ULM - Louisiana Tech Business Outlook Summit

Since 2007, ULM and Louisiana Tech University have partnered to present the Business Outlook Summit as way to provide insight and answers about economic development for the northeast Louisiana region.

The Business Outlook Summit provides information to participants for additional analysis opportunities from local expert forecasters, who have assessed the global, national, regional, and local economies. The main idea is to benefit the regional business community by taking a prepared, informed look at the year ahead.

The Business Outlook Summit is the result of collaboration between the ULM College of Business Administration, the Louisiana Tech University College of Business, the Department of Economic Development-Northeast Louisiana Region, the Monroe Chamber of Commerce, the West Monroe/West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce, and Ruston/Lincoln Parish Chamber of Commerce.

For more information about the Business Outlook Summit, please contact Dr. Robert C. Eisenstadt, Director of the Center for Business and Economic Research at 318-342-1151 or eisenstadt@ulm.edu.
