The Heller Farkas College for Advanced Financial Studies invites You to the 2021 Annual Spring Conference, that rests on the pillar of exploring the American way of life, thus bearing the title: Past, Present & Future of the United States.
As President Johnson once said: “America is not merely a nation but a nation of nations.” and these powerful words entirely grasp the essence of the Union; the essence of these United States.
