Globalization: Where Do We Go From Here?


An event organized by the Jerome A. Chazen Institute at Columbia Business School.

Globalization has, for decades, transformed the way we do business – from international trade to e-commerce. Now, in a new decade with an uncontained pandemic, what does the next iteration of globalization look like? And how will companies and countries alike adapt to this critical juncture?

Join us as we mark 30 years of advancing the conversation on globalization, and contend with what’s next for the world’s marketplace and those who operate in it. 

In this virtual event, we've packed the agenda with top business leaders and scholars who will reflect on the state of globalization, unpack its cross-sector impacts and answer the pressing question: Where do we go from here?

Special thanks to Columbia Global Centers for their support.
