Emergin markets conference

Emerging Multinationals in a Changing World

November 10, 2017 – 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Bloomberg Center, Cornell Tech Campus
Roosevelt Island, 2 W Loop Rd. New York, NY

Over the past 7 years, our conference has been the main event for EMI to showcase our research; bring together leading academics, students, and business leaders to develop organizational partnerships and learn from speakers about their experiences in emerging markets.

This year’s 2017 EMI conference, "Emerging Multinationals in a Changing World", will be exploring how emerging multinationals from Asia and Latin America have expanded aggressively on a global scale. The goal of the conference is to discuss how emerging markets and multinationals are reacting to this changing context and succeeding in this new world. Also at the conference EMI will launch the second EMI report (download last year’s Emerging Market Multinationals Report: The China Surge, click here to download the report []) and host the first EMI case competition. Please contact Audi Prabowo if you are interested in participating in the competition.
