As many of you know, I have the privilege of teaching in Fuqua’s Cross Continent MBA Program. In designing the program we wanted to embed the students in the regions that were shaping the global business landscape for the 21st Century.
Just a few weeks ago our CCMBA students students were in Dubai where they got to hear, first hand, about Dubai’s 2015 Strategy and how it needed to be adjusted due to the recent financial crisis and the role that Dubai World plays in the region.
For those of you thinking that what is happening “over there” in Dubai will not impact us here in the US, I urge you to take another look at Fuqua’s “While You Were Sleeping Video.”
I think it is fair to say that, given their recent experience in Dubai, our CCMBA students are really getting a first hand look at how business is being redefined in the 21st Century.
