Accommodate your busy schedule and take charge of your professional development by attending and participating in the College of Business & Innovation’s interactive event web casts.  The College of Business & Innovation (COBI) at the University of Toledo is proud and excited to announce the launch of its online event catalogs.  To better serve and reach our global business community, the COBI will be streaming public and private (ie: password protected) events such as forums, summits, conferences, etc live over the internet.  Events will also be available on-demand shortly after the event is over so members of the business community can continue to watch and share them with their colleagues.
