INSPIRATIONAL AND MOTIVATIONAL SESSIONS - The world we live in is an interconnected one in which something that happens thousands of miles away can affect markets at home and those in the rest of the world. The global market offers enormous opportunities to managers but also exposes them to a greater number of risks and challenges. The sessions aim to discuss the GBE in which companies operate and in which managers find themselves making their own strategic decisions, analyzing in particular the impact and the effects of trade and capital flows at the international level.
