On Monday, October 10, 2017, the Notre Dame Club of Joliet and Joliet Catholic Academy will co-host a lecture by Associate Professor Corey Angst, Ph.D from the University of Notre Dame Department of Management of the Mendoza College of Business speaking on the extraordinary facts about the size and growth of social media that will shock you while also explaining why and how social media can be used to benefit individuals, companies, and society at large…and where it is all headed in the future.

Dr. Angst teaches Business Problem Solving, Project Management, and Strategic IT at both the undergraduate and graduate level. His research interests are in the transformational effect of IT, technology usage, and IT value. His research has been published in many top journals. He received his Ph.D from the Smith School of Business, University of Maryland.

He and his wife Wendy, also a professor in the management department, have three children who inherited their love of travel.

Since 1986, the Hesburgh Lecture Series has brought a sample of Notre Dame’s academic excellence to alumni and their local communities by sending Notre Dame professors to cities across the country to speak on their areas of expertise. Named in honor of the Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., the University’s president from 1952-1987, the lectures are hosted by Notre Dame clubs, often in cooperation with a local organization, parish, school, or university. Each year nearly 5,000 alumni and friends attend a local Hesburgh Lecture to hear one of the 95 participating faculty members present one of 207 different topics related to church, communications, ethics, family life, government, politics, science concerns, spirituality and more.
