John Kerry, Michael Warren Weigh in on Anti-Globalization #GlobalNetwork5

Former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry YC ’66 and Michael Warren YC ’90, managing principal of Albright Stonebridge Group, engaged with students and led a discussion on the future of globalization and the implications for business and management education during the Global Network for Advanced Management 5th Anniversary Symposium on April 20 at the Yale School of Management.

The event was the culmination of the Global Network Online Course “The End of Globalization,” taught by David Bach, associate dean for the Executive MBA and global programs and professor in the practice of management, which challenged 41 students from 21 Global Network schools to explore the causes and consequences of rising economic nationalism, anti-globalization, and populism. Students presented their findings virtually to Kerry, Warren, and the audience in Edward P. Evans Hall’s Zhang Auditorium.
