Free Event (First come first served; Light lunch will be provided)
The rise of emerging economies in the global market is challenging the applicability of current knowledge and tools in the practice of strategic management. Strategic advice and prescriptions based on the conventional wisdom are often flawed when implemented in emerging economies. Strategy in emerging economies therefore pushes the frontier in strategic thinking in significant ways. This talk will offer new insights and perspectives in strategic management with a focus on emerging economies.
