Emory Executive Education Launches Goizueta Executive Web Series

Emory Executive Education will launch the new Goizueta Executive Web Series, presented by top faculty at Goizueta Business School, at noon EST, Wednesday, Feb. 17. The series is designed for business leaders who want to understand and anticipate trends as well as distinguish between temporary fads and durable sources of economic opportunity.

Presented live before an audience of senior executives and broadcast over the web, the 60-minute interactive webcasts feature some of Goizueta's best-known faculty, beginning Feb. 17 with a global economic outlook presented by professor Jeff Rosensweig.

The session is designed to identify current trends and show viewers how to leverage this information to grow their businesses. The talk will include Rosensweig's forecast for economic and job growth globally and within the United States.

"This opening series and those that will follow provide opportunities to open the conversation and invite the business community to take a forward-thinking, global and creative view of the current environment," says Lisa A. Kaminski, associate dean of Emory Executive Education. "We want participants to come away with ideas that will help them capture new opportunities."
