Sample the high quality of teaching and strong industry
engagement of DCU Business School at the 'Doing Business in the East'
This half-day conference will bring together the brightest minds of
DCU Business School and industry and government experts, to explore business
opportunities in India, Russia, China and the Arabian Gulf.
The conference follows a key recommendation
of the recent Global Irish Economic Forum, which encouraged Ireland Inc. to
look East for opportunities.
The event forms part of DCU Business School's
ground-breaking Next Generation Management initiative, which is designed to
prepare the next generation of business leaders and managers, who are
adaptive and flexible, innovative, socially responsible and accountable. The
initiative is structured around the major personal,
organisational and contextual challenges in modern
management and specifically in a post-growth economy.
