The e-commerce explosion, the right to “disconnect” and the risky business of fantasy sports games are among the weighty topics explored on ilLUminate, the new blog of Lehigh’s College of Business and Economics.
Launched earlier this year, the blog offers thoughtful perspectives from the college’s faculty, alumni and students on complex issues related to business.
“Lehigh’s College of Business and Economics is home to some of the smartest and most creative thinkers it has ever been my pleasure to encounter,” said Dean Georgette Chapman Phillips in announcing the launch of the blog. “I believe that the perspectives our faculty, alumni and students offer will challenge, stimulate and illuminate.”
The blog is updated continually. Posts have examined tax cuts, the new energy economy, health insurance markets, whether robots are stealing jobs and the physical internet. Among the contributors are faculty and alumni, including Cathy Engelbert ’86, CEO of Deloitte LLP.
“We believe our mission is to educate people of all stages and phases of their lives,” Phillips wrote. “There is always the opportunity to learn, to view something from a different perspective.”
