Best-selling author and former GE chairman and CEO Jack Welch will visit Sacred Heart University on April 20 for a discussion and signing of his new book, “The Real Life MBA,” co-written with his wife, Suzy.

The event will include a reception and tours of the new Frank and Marisa Martire Business & Communications Center.

Sacred Heart’s John F. Welch College of Business is named for Welch, who began his career at GE in 1960 as a chemical engineer and who retired from the company in 2001 as chairman and CEO.

Welch, according to a Sacred Heart University press release, “manages numerous companies as part of a private equity firm and serves as executive chairman of the Jack Welch Management Institute.”

The Welch College of Business-sponsored event begins at 5:30 p.m. at the Business & Communications Center, 5401 Park Ave., Fairfield. The event is free. To RSVP, visit sacredheart.edu.
