Corporate Partners

The Institute is forging partnerships with leading corporations worldwide with the mutual goal of furthering research and understanding of the rapidly expanding role of emerging markets in the global economy. To facilitate this, we ask our corporate partners to contribute $20,000 annually.

Corporations that partner with the Emerging Markets Institute will have:

  • The opportunity to sponsor a consulting project for a team of MBA students focused on the emerging markets
  • Advisory board membership with other senior executives, offering the opportunity for in-depth peer-to-peer idea exchange and an active role in planning future initiatives of the institute.
  • The opportunity to develop a recruiting pipeline from the Emerging Markets Fellows Program, which requires a rigorous combination of studies and practical experience in emerging markets
  • Invitations to private roundtables where business leaders can network and exchange best practices on emerging market topics
  • Access through our unique web-based portal to a database of academic research spanning five years across 50 academic journals and 43 countries classified as “emerging”. Includes a search engine to navigate through 2000 articles.
  • Invitations to an annual academic conference on emerging market research
  • The opportunity to collaborate on a case writing project or research initiative with faculty
  • The opportunity to request benchmark studies on countries, industries and issues
