Mark W. Albers, senior vice president of Exxon Mobil Corporation, will speak at ACU next Wednesday, March 26, for the College of Business Administration’s Distinguished Speakers Series.
“I’ve listened to him speak over podcasts a while ago and he truly believes in keeping your faith in the marketplace,” said Jake Mulder, senior marketing major from Spring.
Albers resides in The Woodlands and works with different government programs around the world, encouraging them to allow Exxon to help them work, explore, develop and produce successful products in different countries.
Albers graduated with a bachelor’s degree in petroleum engineering from Texas A&M University. He devotes his time to assuring the younger generations in the business world and to make their faith a part of who they are at home and especially at the office.
Although a man of faith in every aspect of life, he is happy with his success at Exxon Mobil. He was featured in Forbes magazine in 2004 and has served on the United States Council for International Business.
“We’re really excited for Mr. Albers to come and speak with COBA students because he will speak about how to keep our faith within the marketplace””one of the more difficult ideas to keep hold of after we graduate from ACU,” said Hunter Haley, senior accounting and finance major from Rockwall.
Albers will speak about how his own faith-based decisions have affected his life.
“Ever since I was a freshman here in COBA, our professors have always repeated the importance of keeping our faith in the marketplace,” Mulder said.
The Distinguished Speakers Series thinks Albers will encourage students to listen to the other speakers a part of the series.
COBA announced on Wednesday there are only 50 tickets left for the event. For pricing and more information visit the COBA website at blogs.acu.edu/coba.
