MIEX Alumni Day 2019

It time to go MAD again!

Now in its fourth edition, the MIEX Alumni Day, better known simply as MAD, is dedicated to the MIEX Global Community: alumni, students, partners, professors and business professionals. The event serves as a forum for MIEXers from all editions, all over the world to network, reconnect, as colleagues and professionals, as well as friends, while discovering and learning about new business practices and pertinent issues that are changing the world of business.

MIEX is proud to present MIEX Alumni Day - MAD 2019

The theme of MAD 2019 is “A Changing International Trade Environment. Implications from growing nationalism, political agendas and new trade barriers “.

Meet our Panel of Speakers:

Andrea Mantovani is Associate Professor in Economics at the University of Bologna. He will discuss new challenges in the global scenario, particularly Brexit and the current US administration. He will explore how these critical moments in history pose additional threats challenging negotiations between the UK and the EU, and the trade war between US and China. How are European firms responding to these new challenges?

Francesco Ciabuschi is Professor of International Business at Uppsala University’s Department of Business Studies. Prof. Ciabuschi will discuss the effects that local political support has on Chinese firms’ internationalization and the management of their subsidiaries. Aspects concerning what changing global trade might bring to the future of Chinese MNCs will also be discussed.

Olof Lindahl is Assistant Professor at at Uppsala University’s Department of Business Studies. Dr. Lindahl will discuss how the liberalization of global trade overtime gave rise to multinational firms as well as shaped their international strategies and structures, focusing on how the current changes to global trade might trigger new strategies and structures in multinational firms with far-reaching consequences for international business and trade.

Jacopo Guidotti is Associate Consultant at Veeva Systems based in Barcelona and is an edition 15 MIEX Alumnus. Jacopo will discuss how cloud computing and international trade innovation enabled by cloud services powers the global economy and its ever growing role in the future. He will also talk about restrictive policies that could potentially slow down the evolution of cloud computing, and how world leading countries are positioning themselves in the race for the cloud.

As always, MIEX Alumni Day also shines a light on our alumni, giving them the opportunity to actively participate and speak throughout the event about their experiences and professional journeys after MIEX! Because their success is our success as a Community!
