CEIBS MBA Exclusive Lecture: The Impact of Rapid Global Expansion on Organizational Culture
Put yourself in the shoes of the CEO: Your company is doing well and has acquired several new overseas brands following intensive international M&A activities. With your new global footprint, how do you create a unified corporate identity that respects the traditions of the founding company whilst also embracing the strengths of the acquired companies?
You are invited to join CEIBS Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior, Emily M. David, for an Exclusive MBA lecture as she discusses this topic with a focus on companies expanding from China to the world.
During the lecture, Professor David will draw upon her award-winning case study about the Chinese consumer goods firm Health & Happiness (H&H) International Holdings. Participants can expect to gain an understanding of the complexities of adopting a glocal approach, how to bring together diverse employees, and what it is like to sit in the classroom of the MBA programme ranked #7 globally and #1 in Asia by the Financial Times.
