“EMI celebrated its 10th Anniversary in 2020, marking 5 Emerging Market Multinational Reports, 10 Annual Conferences, the launch of the pitch and case competitions, and the graduation of 60 EMI Fellows. None of this would be possible without a great EMI team, the generous support of alumni, faculty, and Johnson community at large. I feel grateful and privileged to be part of the EMI family, and I am confident that EMI is just beginning its second decade of excellence.” Lourdes Casanova, Gail and Rob Cañizares Director, EMI
