EMBA conference: "USA-China Hegemonic Struggles, Grand Strategy: Lessons from History"

Paris Event completed

The KEDGE Global Executive MBA team is pleased to invite you to an international finance and geo-economics conference in Paris taught by Pr. Laurent ESTACHY.


The global business world is now being reconfigured by a decoupling between the world’s two largest economies, the U.S. and China, after decades of interdependence. The curent trade and currency wars are resulting in a world with greater risk, more volatility and slower economic growth. As a consequence, business leaders need to embrace the new paradigm that geopolitical risk is likely to play a more central role in shaping markets in the decade ahead.

The conference will deal with the lessons of History, comparing the recent analysis of Graham Allison (Destined for war – America, China and Thucydides’s Trap) with the key of readings provided by economic historian Fernand Braudel...  

The conference will be followed by a cocktail with alumni, participants, faculty and Kedge representatives

December 17th, 2019 in Paris from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm
