The Coggin College of Business International Business Flagship Program is organizing a one-day conference on Value Creation in the Global Economy on March 16, 2018. The conference aims to provide a deeper understanding of challenging issues facing A) logistics, B) leadership, and C) entrepreneurship in global context.

Different from a traditional conference, Value Creation in the Global Economy will combine the keynote speech and roundtable discussions in one day. Three keynote speakers with profound insights in the above subject matter will give us inspiring presentations. Three panels of five formed by faculties with specialized research interests and business practitioners with rich experiences will lead a roundtable discussion, diving into the subject matter after each keynote speech in an intellectually engaging and stimulating environment. Our goal is each participant will walk away from the conference with something inspiring to pursue in their career. In the meantime, the conference will provide a rare opportunity for practitioners and academics to explore potential collaborations between them.
