Whether it’s economics, geopolitics, or international security and terrorism, few people have a better understanding of global issues than Professor Janice Gross Stein. Her dynamic discussion promises to provide a unique perspective into what’s really happening around the world and what it means to us personally and professionally. Professor Stein’s webcast will help us connect the dots regarding key events and will also provide a look at the big picture. These long term perspectives are aimed to assist business leaders to start thinking about what their businesses may look like in the future.

  • What the new world may look like
  • Who she thinks will be the biggest winners and loosers
