Much reported on and frequently mentioned as a possible successor to Citigroup chairman Sanford Weill, Krawcheck will address a group of ambitious undergraduate business majors and MBA candidates striving to make their own reputation on Wall Street. The talk, part of the The Russell Banks CEO Leadership Series at Baruch College, will be followed by a spirited Q & A session.
