    After enjoying growth for several years, many multinational corporations get stuck in the so-called midway trap where they experience slow growth and bigger challenges to grow faster than the industry average. In this context, India-experience can prove useful. Despite many challenges, the country's potential and fundamentals will likely make India one of the giant markets in the coming decade. Given the country's multitude of challenges and opportunities, success in India requires a paradigm shift in the way global managers think, organize and operate. In his lecture, Kishore Dash, Ph.D., will address some of the lessons from doing business in India that can be useful for executives to succeed and escape from the midway trap in emerging and developed markets.

    Following the lecture, please join us for networking at the on-campus Thunderbird Pub.
