Doors will open at 11 a.m. with lunch served at noon in the Grand Metropolitan room of the Radisson Hotel Star Plaza, 800 E. 81st Ave. in Merrillville.

Kukral is a 16-year internet marketing veteran and best-selling author of multiple books.

As a Web entrepreneur, his projects have been featured in places like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Fox Business News, BusinessWeek, Entrepreneur Magazine, Inc., and Forbes.

The annual luncheon serves as a fundraiser to benefit the business school, and its students. IU Northwest remains the only public business program in Northwest Indiana that is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business International (AACSB), a benchmark of quality attained by only 5 percent of business schools worldwide.

The IU Northwest Business Alliance strives to create a professional partnership between the IU Northwest School of Business and Economics and members of the Northwest Indiana business community. This partnership is meant to increase the interaction between the school and the business community by leveraging faculty and staff expertise to assist local businesses; by retaining the school’s students for jobs in Northwest Indiana; and by ensuring business input into the school’s curriculum planning and mission processes.

Tickets are $40 per person or $350 for a table of 10, which includes eight corporate representatives and two business and economic students.

Platinum, Gold and Silver sponsorship packages are also available. Checks can be made payable to Indiana University. Sponsorship is not tax deductible.
