The Business of Globalization: The Good, the Bad, the Ugly

Globalization has become a cliché, though users of the word disagree - sometimes violently - of its consequences. Recent decades of globalization have created a more interconnected, interdependent and complex world than ever witnessed before. As such, globalization arguably has three sides: the good, the bad, and the ugly. This crisis requires an extraordinarily deep level of reflection by global leaders — and by society at large.

If the benefits of globalization are to continue to outweigh the risks that rapid integration exacerbates, understanding systemic interconnec-tions and building multi-stakeholder responses are vital. There have been many debates about globalization and inequalities, but what is the evidence? How is this debate relevant to our MBA curriculum, to the development of your Alverno MBA competences, and to your complex role as business and community leaders?

Please join us for breakfast and an engaging conversation with our panel!
