World Today Discussion Series “Creating, Running and Managing Businesses in Emerging Markets: From the Perspective of an Entrepreneur, Investor, CEO and Chairman” with CGM Board Chair, Craig Ehrlich (B.A. ’78), Chairman and Co-Founder, Novare Technologies, Inc., Independent Director, Bharti Airtel and Former Chairman of the GSMA

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 entry 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. Open to UCLA Anderson Students and by Invitation Only. RSVP Required. For more information and to RSVP >>



The Los Angeles Global Health Conference, “Looking In, Looking Out: Balancing Global and Local Priorities in the Current Political Climate,” Covel Commons at UCLA

The Los Angeles Global Health Conference is an annual global health conference hosted in Southern California. Organized by UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine, Fielding School of Public Health, Undergraduate Departments, and USC Keck School of Medicine and affiliated schools, the conference aims to educate and connect with members of the UCLA, USC, CDU and Los Angeles communities about the varying disparities both in our backyards and around the world. The UCLA Anderson Center for Global Management is a sponsor of the event. Home to individuals from more than 140 countries speaking 224 different languages, Los Angeles's rich cultural diversity makes it an ideal place to examine the current status of world health. The Los Angeles Global Health Conference provides an interactive educational forum to discuss innovative ways to tackle health disparities—locally and globally. This year’s conference theme is “Looking In, Looking Out: Balancing Global and Local Priorities in the Current Political Climate.” Given the current global events, priority shifting is key to successfully address health disparities both in our backyard and abroad. The 2018 conference seeks to bring together individuals from various backgrounds to create a dialogue that informs and equips our future global health leaders.
