IBGC Speaker Series

Each academic year, the Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC) Speaker Series hosts a number of high profile lectures and events featuring a spectrum of industry leaders and entrepreneurial visionaries from diverse international business fields to share their experiences, insights and advice with students and the community at large.

These international business leaders render culturally stimulating, entertaining and thought-provoking discussions on topics as compelling as cross border trade and finance, developing capital markets, emerging market private equity, business diplomacy, to international entrepreneurship.
