APSIA & Bloomberg Present: Anticipating Global Market Forces to Prepare Future Leaders


Virtual event
Thursday, January 14, 2021, 10 – 11am

As educators, we seek to navigate the complex landscape of international forces affecting political and economic stability. Against strong headwinds, colleges and universities must redefine their role. How can we adapt to this rapidly changing landscape? How can we anticipate and best prepare students to shape the future world?
Please join Bloomberg for Education and the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) for a roundtable conversation with leading international affairs professionals who are both practitioners and deans of schools. We will explore the global market forces that students will have to navigate in their professional lives.
APSIA is dedicated to the improvement of graduate education in international affairs. It brings together the leading graduate schools around the world that specialize in international affairs. They work to help students, schools, organizations, and partners transform themselves into effective agents of positive change.

Bloomberg for Education helps universities prepare students for the global job market by bringing the real world of finance into the classroom, providing students with access to the same information platform used by leading decision makers in business, finance, and government.

In this presentation, we will explore:

  • Critical stabilizing and destabilizing factors in the world and their potential impact on the markets
  • How these factors could alter the university experience globally going forward
  • Ways for universities to prepare future leaders for success in this altered world
