3rd CEMS Corporate Roundtable Discussion

CEIBS Center for Emerging Market Studies (CEMS) is hosting its 3rd Corporate Roundtable Discussion on the afternoon of Monday, May 7, 2018, at CEIBS Shanghai campus.

This event is exclusively designed to bring together corporates and global senior fellows to exchange their experience and knowledge in emerging markets. Via this platform, we expect the attending corporate representatives can benefit from our fellows' expertise, while the fellows develop a better understanding of the emerging market issues/topics that concern corporates the most.

Around 20 companies, mostly MNCs, are expected to attend this event. The Center has invited 3 senior fellows (2 from the US, and 1 from Beijing) to share their research output at the event; they are all prominent scholars in the emerging markets field.

Event Purpose:

* Bringing together the Center's senior fellows with corporate executives and managers to communicate, explore and discuss the most up to date knowledge and the most pressing challenges about emerging markets

* Networking with executives and managers from high-performance MNCs and emerging local companies

* Connecting with the most prominent scholars in the field of emerging markets
