Programme and Impressions of the Conference

"Success in Emerging Markets" 2017

For the first time, the Chair of Management (Prof. Dr. Rudolf Grünig) and the Chair for International Management (Prof. Dr. Dirk Morschett) invite you to a jointly-organised conference on "Success in Emerging Markets".

Emerging markets have become increasingly important for Swiss companies – both as potential new markets and as production locations. However, they are not easy to enter, and successful management in emerging markets poses serious challenges.

This conference includes speeches from top managers with a long history of experience in emerging markets, panel discussions, and time for networking. It is being organised to give executives in Swiss SMEs and MNCs valuable insights about how to enter these countries and how to successfully do business there.
