TAKE A MILLIONAIRE TO LUNCH SERIES
Every year B-School students have the awesome opportunity to experience Dr. Kimbro's Take a Millionaire to Lunch series that features self-made millionaires. The annual event is "designed to expose CAU business students to the norms and mores of wealth creation...students learn firsthand the rudiments and skill set that is truly needed to succeed as an entrepreneur in today's hyper-competitive economy." 

This year's series featured Usher's mother, Jonetta Patton, DJ Mars, and curlBox founder Myleik Teele.  If you missed the live streams of Myleik Teele and Jonetta Patton you can view them here

Check out Dr. Kimbro's Instagram for great photos from the event.
