Global Seminar Series - Spring 2021

How About the Future of Business: Creating a Sustainable World

International business and the global economy face enormous challenges from external forces like the global pandemic, the rise of nationalism, and global climate change as well as internal impacts such as unethical business practices, fair labor and trade, and speculation and uncertainty in the financial markets. How will business sustain itself and how can business support the sustainability of our global community?

Through a series of seminars, we will bring together students and faculty from five leading business schools in five countries (Argentina, Austria, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Israel) to explore how business can create a sustainable world. Using the UN Sustainability Goals as a benchmark, we will learn and exchange ideas on developing and leading sustainable strategic initiatives, creating new digital business models, and using proper metrics and measurements to ensure effective sustainable growth.

Professors from around the world will present on these topics.

Sign-up for the entire series and receive a joint certificate from the five participating universities or sign up for individual seminars.
