We invite Yale SOM alumni to join Senior Associate Dean and Senior Lecturer in Global Business and Politics, David Bach, who will deliver a 90-minute master class drawn from his popular core MBA ‘State & Society’ course. Join a case-based discussion about how to create value beyond the market by effectively managing relations with a diverse set of market- and nonmarket stakeholders. The audience will include high potential MBA and EMBA candidates. The purpose of the event will be for the candidates to experience the unique SOM learning environment, while showcasing the caliber and commitment of our alumni and friends.  We expect a highly interactive discussion. Short pre-work readings will be distributed in advance of the event.

David’s research focuses on business-government relations, nonmarket strategy, and market regulation in a globalizing world economy, with particular emphasis on the regulation of financial markets. Guests will also have an opportunity to connect with admissions representatives, alumni and current students.
