Greetings From Guy

Guy PfeffermannI spent a week in India ahead of GBSN’s seventh annual conference (Delhi, June 12-13), meeting with corporates, government, academics, World Bank and IFC. I had a chance to visit the Ghaziabad campus of the Institute of Management Technology (IMT), our academic conference partner and GBSN member school. It was a special pleasure for me to get to know Dr. Bibek Banerjee, IMT’s Director, who greatly enhanced the Delhi meetings. I think the conference is going to be a roaring success.

This was my first trip to India since 2000, and I want to share some of my (very superficial) impressions.

I was amazed at the ubiquitous availability of consumer goods at international or even lower prices. That is a sea change from just twelve years ago, one that has vastly increased real purchasing power. Click here to read more

'Knowhow needed for real-world problems' - a Soapbox article from Guy Pfeffermann in the Financial Times

Financial Times"MBA students have a reputation for being hard-nosed "A types”, focused only on the bottom line. Increasingly, the reality is very different. Many students at the world’s best business schools are drawn to the challenge of addressing the developing world’s most intractable issues. To borrow an apt cliché – they don’t just want to do well, they also want to do good.” Click here to read the article
