The Sufrin lectureship is presented each year by the Department of Accounting and Law. The speaker is someone of distinguished achievement in the fields of accounting, finance, financial economics or financial management.
The format varies, but generally the guest speaker will give a presentation for faculty and students from UB and other area academic institutions, as well as business professionals. The session is typically followed by a question and answer period.
This lectureship is funded by a generous contribution by Dr. Gerald Sufrin, professor and chair of the University at Buffalo's Department of Urology in the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, and Mr. Leslie Sufrin, founder of Leslie Sufrin & Company, a division of Weiser LLP. The lectureship is named in memory of their parents.
