A weekend in Hong Kong, Tokyo or Jakarta might have been out of the question, but fortunately our sophomores in the Integrated Learning Community for Global Business, or ILC-GB, were able to learn about business in Asia simply by traveling four hours north to Boston.
Accompanied by their adviser, Assistant Dean Steven Najdzionek, the ILC students attended Harvard University’s annual Asia Business Conference. This year’s edition carried the title “Rising Tides: Asia Lifts the World,” and it attracted hundreds of students, scholars and businesspeople from many nations.
Dean Najdzionek said that the conference “sought to offer both students and practitioners a more thorough understanding of not only the issues surrounding the recent global financial crisis, but also of Asia’s role within it as an economic driver and catalyst.”
The ILC-GB is a residential living and learning community that students apply to in the spring of their freshman year and join, if accepted, the following fall. Click here to learn more.
