Lunch with Leaders is a casual discussion between a group of business school students and a highly successful business leader. This valuable interaction introduces students to real ethical issues that happen in the workplace, and helps prepare them for handling their own ethical dilemmas once they graduate.
This personal, round-table event is limited to 12 students in order to facilitate a genuine, small group discussion about real ethical challenges in the workplace. (Plus, a delicious catered lunch!)

Rachel Thornton is a chief audit executive, overseeing Liberty Media’s Internal Audit function in managing risks, monitoring controls, enhancing security and improving corporate governance. Rachel believes that an effective, insightful internal audit function provides comfort to management that their organizations can meet the demands of changing environments.
Rachel began her career serving Liberty Media and other large clients at EY. At Liberty, she oversees the Internal Audit departments for five separate public companies (Liberty Media Corporation, Liberty Interactive Corporation, Liberty TripAdvisor Holdings, Liberty Broadband Corporation, and Liberty Expedia Holdings) and their portfolio companies. As of July 2017, the portfolio companies cross a broad range of industries, including Media and Sports Entertainment (e.g., SiriusXM, the Atlanta Braves, and Formula 1 racing), Retail (e.g., QVC and zulily), Travel (e.g., TripAdvisor and Expedia), and Technology (Skyhook). However, Rachel must remain flexible as the composition of the public companies and portfolio companies changes on an ongoing basis due to Liberty M&A activity.
In addition to her significant internal audit and consulting experience, Rachel is a Certified Internal Auditor (CIA) and has earned a Certification in Risk Management Assurance (CRMA). Rachel earned a BA in International Business and Management from the University of Oklahoma.
