Abilene Christian University's College of Business Administration has announced the schedule for its 2004-05 Distinguished Speakers Series, including a videoconference session with Michael Dell, chairman and CEO of Dell.

The Distinguished Speakers Series is designed to bring national business leaders of integrity to Abilene and to ACU to share their keys to success and how they have integrated faith and Biblical principles into their work.

"This year's speakers are at the top of their profession," said Michael Winegeart, assistant professor of management sciences and director of collaborative learning.  "This series includes business professionals who have proven success in business and in their personal lives. Their stories will inspire, admonish and mentor you in your professional growth and development."
