Frank Ghannadian, dean of The University of Tampa Sykes College of Business, will speak on the economic impact of globalization, with a special emphasis on Tampa Bay, at a luncheon meeting at Feather Sound Country Club on Friday, Feb. 22.

In addition, Ghannadian will discuss the ramifications of these issues on the Tampa Bay economy and an overview of regional economic forces.

He leads UT's Sykes College of Business, which has been named by The Princeton Review as an outstanding business school and is one of only 19 private schools in the Southeast accredited at both the graduate and undergraduate levels by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB International).
