Chicago Booth's largest student-led conference

 

From Uncertainty to Opportunity

March 31st - April 1st, 2022 | Dual modality

The events of the past few years have been unprecedented. A global pandemic, deteriorating diplomatic relationships and threats of war in many parts of the world, economic turmoil, and a changing political landscape have all created a fog of global uncertainty.

Through this fog, emerging markets remain this decade’s primary engines of economic growth. In a rapidly-changing world, emerging economies are leading the global wave of transformation through the power of innovation, the diversity of their demographics, and progress along economic and social parameters. As we enter a new post-pandemic world, emerging markets stand poised to transform uncertainty into opportunity, advancing their roles in the global economy and, in the process, helping to shape the balance of global power.

Join us at the 2022 Booth Emerging Markets Summit (EMS) as government leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, executives, and academics from across regions and disciplines gather for two days of spirited conversation to understand how emerging markets can make the most of this opportunity before them. Through a series of global and regional panels, we hope to expand on our theme, “From Uncertainty to Opportunity” with professionals from Africa, Asia Pacific, Eastern Europe, Latin America, South Asia, and the Middle East on Thursday Mar 31 & Friday April 01.
