Esade Alumni Experience Day II: reinventing the future

Jornada anual | English

Last year we celebrated the first edition of Esade Alumni Experience Day in Dubai, one of the most highly anticipated events of the year for the Esade Alumni network. Save the date for Saturday 29th of February as the International Esade Alumni meeting is landing again on the city but this time in the Shangri-La Hotel Dubai to celebrate the Esade Alumni Experience Day II. 

This year the topic will be “Reinventing the future” and we will explore different fields such as strategy, business and markets.

We will have the pleasure of counting on the presence of David Dinwoodie (MBA 91), Managing Director Executive Education & Chief Corporate Relations Officer, and Jan Hohberger, Associate Dean and Associate Professor in Strategy and General Management, who will give an introduction about the future trends on corporate strategy.

Corporate strategy is focused on the pursuit of competitive advantage, profitable growth, and risk management by competing across markets and industries. During his session, Prof. Hohberger will connect real-life business cases and with empirical research to discuss future trends, its underlying assumption, and potential outcomes of corporate strategy.

This is a great opportunity open to Esade Alumni and also to everyone living in the United Arab Emirates and other nearby countries interested in the development and future of the region.
