Was this the heralded 'retail revolution'? Discussion about the buyout of Whole Foods by Amazon

Programa de continuidad | Spanish

September 19 OF 2017 from 07:30 PM to 09:00 PM

Last July, Amazon announced that it was buying Whole Foods for $13,700 m. The ensuing avalanche of press coverage was equalled only by the brainstorm amongst the prophets of the ''retail revolution''.

ESADE Alumni invites you to this talk in the refresher programme series, entitled ''Was this the heralded ''retail revolution''? Discussion about the buyout of Whole Foods by Amazon'', during which we will discuss what underlies this business decision.

We will start with an overview from three standpoints:

1. Finance by associate professor Gloria Batllori (Lic&MBA 85)
2. Logistics and operations by associate professor Jaume Hugas (MBA 88)
3. Channel strategy by associate professor Lluís Martínez-Ribes (Lic&MBA 76)

This will be followed by a discussion between colleagues.

Each member may bring a maximum of one guest.

See you there!
