Welcome

Please join us in Paris for the Pan-European Forum 2018, Columbia Business School’s 11th international alumni gathering. This two-day symposium on global socioeconomic trends will bring prominent Business School faculty together with world-class industry leaders, many of whom are alumni at the cutting edge of their fields. If you would like a printed invitation or have questions about this exciting event, please email Rashmi Trivedi, senior associate director, Alumni Relations, at rt2442@gsb.columbia.edu.

The forum will take place at exclusive, historic venues in the City of Lights: Hotel d'Evreux 1, the former Crédit Foncier de France; Palais Brongniart 2, Paris’s 19th-century stock exchange; Cercle de l'Union Interalliée 3, a private social and dining club established in 1917 for allied officers serving in World War I; and Les Pavillons de Bercy 4, a uniquely stunning venue, rarely open to the public.
