Over the past decade, business and investment opportunities in emerging markets have increased dramatically. Yet these countries represent a wide spectrum of economic, legal and political environments. In order to be successful in emerging markets, it is necessary to have a detailed understanding of the problems and challenges these markets face and how these economies operate. How are opportunities to enter emerging markets identified? What are good indicators to evaluate the timing of entry? How are uncertainties handled? How is funding secured?

From formulating an effective market strategy, selecting the right local partner and managing political and economic pressures to financing ventures, hiring the right talent and corporate governance issues. Please join the Center for Global Management (CGM) and Professor Sebastian Edwards, Henry Ford II Chair in International Management in hosting CGM board chair Craig Ehrlich for a conversation around the most salient features of emerging market economies and the opportunities, risks and challenges that these markets present for entrepreneurs and investors as well as for executive and board leadership.
