Exploring Frontiers: Leveraging Unique Strengths to Catalyze Global Growth

May 9, 2020 | University of Chicago, Harper Center

Emerging Markets Summit is the largest student-led conference at Chicago Booth. Emerging Markets Summit is a platform for professionals and students to learn and discuss about emerging markets.

The last decade came to a close with business and government leaders worldwide rethinking the future of globalization in the wake of increasing protectionism and geo-political uncertainty. Yet, the most pressing challenges – and opportunities to overcome these challenges – we face are more global and overarching than ever before. The climate crisis threatens to wreak havoc on food supply, housing, and infrastructure. Rising inequality, coupled with low social mobility, has destabilized numerous political regimes. Rapid expansion of the digital economy has boosted access and productivity for many, yet eroded well-established competitive advantages for many others.

With their favorable demographic outlook, thirst for innovation, and growing ability to leapfrog past old systems, emerging markets will play a critical role in tackling these global challenges, while leveraging their own unique strengths to do so. Join us at this year's summit as government leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, executives, and academicians from across regions and disciplines gather for a day of spirited conversation to identify these unique strengths.
