Business Outlook Panel

Information is power.

Learn from esteemed members of the Indiana University faculty as they predict the 2020 economic forecast. 

Since 1972, experts from the Indiana Business Research Center (IBRC), a part of the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, compile, analyze, and interpret international, U.S., Indiana, and local economic data and prepare predictions for the coming year. IBRC representatives traverse the state during November to present their forecasts in communities across Indiana. 

At each tour stop, IBRC panelists are joined by a local expert who provides projections for the community. Learn the Columbus area forecast from Steve Mohler, visiting assistant professor of management and economics course coordinator at Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus. The financial markets forecast will be given by Dr. Ryan Brewer, associate professor of finance and MBA director at IUPUC.

Co-hosted by the IUPUC Division of Business and Columbus Area Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Centra Credit Union, all proceeds from the Columbus event support student scholarships in the Division of Business at IUPUC.
