Strategy Symposium on Emerging Markets

The purpose of this symposium is to have active scholars, from both the US and abroad, share interesting research on strategy issues related to emerging markets. We hope this symposium will advance strategy research on this important topic as well as give scholars an opportunity to connect and network with the related community of faculty and researchers interested in this area.
