For the Benefit of the World

On June 13-14, 2014, the Wharton Global Forum Beijing will explore the theme “Growth Through Innovation.” The Forum draws on the expertise of internationally recognized scholars and business leaders who will discuss how to spark, cultivate, implement, and sustain innovation. Areas of focus include financial markets, technology, entrepreneurship, education, healthcare, and sustainability.

Through keynote speeches, master classes, panels, and roundtables, the Beijing Forum will bring the Wharton classroom to Asia. Speakers will take an interdisciplinary approach to examining how innovation can drive expansion in a variety of contexts—looking at day-to-day work within organizations, industry-specific tactics, and innovation’s invaluable role in building a strong, sustainable global economy.

Social events and facilitated networking sessions will provide additional opportunities through which Wharton alumni and global business leaders can engage in thought-provoking dialogue while building new connections with one another.
