Thursday, May 3, 2018
Held at the University of Nebraska Omaha, College of Business Administration

Coined by Vice Chairman Charlie Munger, ‘the Berkshire System’ was outlined by him in a 2015 shareholder letter in celebration of the company’s 50th anniversary. To understand the system is to understand Berkshire Hathaway, one of the world’s most admired companies. Often copied but never duplicated, these are some of the areas the Summit will explore:

  • Extraordinary Capital Allocation
  • Unique Corporate Values Culture
  • Passionate and Talented Managers
