Business forum returns next year

Last Friday, the School of Business Administration announced plans for the second annual Global Business Forum, which will take place next year from Jan. 12 to 14. During last year’s forum, famous CEOs, such as Jack Welch, spoke at the University of Miami about pressing economic issues, such as the prevalence of global connectivity.

“Like the first Global Business Forum, which was held in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, the 2011 conference will provide an unparalleled opportunity for deep discussion on some of the most critical issues of our time,” said Barbara E. Kahn, dean of the School of Business Administration.
