Business knows no boundaries. As the world's first global business school, Fuqua's mission is to produce global leaders of consequence. To help support this mission, the goal of the MBAA’s 2nd Annual Global Week, in collaboration with Fuqua's many international diversity clubs, is to provide a deeper global perspective on business topics ranging from emerging markets and innovation through guest lecturers with regional experts, and cultural events, varying from food and dance through daily lunch fairs that feature regional cuisine and culture. Join us for a week of immersion in our collective global community.
