Advantage India: Breaking News on Business Research
Monday, January 23, 2017
7:00 – 10:30 p.m.
Oberoi Trident, Narimann Point, Mumbai
Join us in Mumbai for an evening with top scholars from the Chazen Institute for Global Business at Columbia Business School, who will deliver lightning-round presentations on critical business topics. Three 20-minute programs will spark wide-ranging discussions on India's toughest business challenges.
How Government Borrowing Can Help India Get the Infrastructure It Needs
Infrastructure projects often require large investment and have long gestation periods, which makes them unattractive to private sector firms and outside investors. This research offers a model for attracting more private sector financing. Professor Suresh Sundaresan, Director of the India Business Initiative at the Chazen Institute for Global Business, and Chase Manhattan Bank Foundation Professor of Financial Institutions at Columbia Business School, will present.
Surprising Impacts of India's Cultural Norms on Managers
Indian cultural norms dictate that subordinates defer to their managers. But this dynamic doesn't always lead to good decision making. Understanding what triggers this norm is crucial for managers who want to build a thriving, innovative organization. It's also relevant to managers who want to change or shape a new culture. Professor Michael Morris, the Chavkin-Chang Professor of Leadership at Columbia Business School, will offer insights from his latest research.
Savings Gluts, Financial Fragility, and Demonetization
When assets are hoarded rather than invested, the effects ripple through entire financial systems. Professor Tano Santos, the David L. and Elsie M. Dodd Professor of Finance and Co-director of the Heilbrunn Center for Graham & Dodd Investing, will shed light on what savings gluts are, what the consequences are for financial fragility, how assets are valued during savings gluts, and what the policy implications might be for India.
After the event, guests are invited to continue discussion over a networking dinner.Register for this event
