India: Remarkable, Resilient, Relevant, will bring business and thought leaders together to debate the opportunities and challenges that will shape India’s role in the emerging world order.

India Business Conference

The Kellogg India Business Conference (KIBC), since its inception in 1992, has been the premier forum on critical Indian business issues, consistently bringing together successful and influential leaders from the public and private sectors to share their perspectives with students, alumni, faculty, and others interested in India. The 2009 KIBC moves up one level, from selling India to being a medium for individuals and companies to better partake in India’s success. Even as Indian companies go global and foreign companies descend on the subcontinent, riding the great Indian elephant remains a tricky proposition for most. With this year’s conference, we attempt to provide a broad and innovative toolkit for understanding India and benefiting from it by interacting with dynamic business leaders, seasoned entrepreneurs, and veteran expats with first-hand experience of dealing with India and Indians.

China’s large population and rapidly growing economy will create challenges that the country and the world must face.

The 2009 Greater China Business Conference, "From the World’s Factory to the World’s Innovators," will explore how China is transforming itself. From the 1980’s when China first opened its doors to foreign investment, to becoming a manufacturing center, to embracing new technology and business practices to becoming a world economy through membership in the WTO and hosting the 2008 Olympics. The conference will provide insights on marketing to Chinese consumers, branding Chinese products globally, China’s finance and investment environment, and China’s international relationships. The conference will feature prominent keynote speakers and panelists who will share their knowledge and experiences on building careers in China from different perspectives as well as the entrepreneurial challenges of building a business in China.
