Welcome to the 2015 Asia Business Conference!
Since 1994, the Asia Business Conference at Harvard Business School has hosted dynamic discussions on Asia by thought leaders in a range of disciplines and fields. Today, it is the largest student-run conference on Asia in North America, drawing hundreds of attendees from not only the Harvard and greater Boston community, but also from all over the world.
The 2015 conference theme is “Asia’s Evolving Identity.” We will explore how Asia’s cultural dynamics are shaping innovation, investment, industry, policy, law, and more. Is Asia merely a geographical or also a cultural definition? If an Asian cultural identity exists, what is it based on? How are economic, social, and institutional changes shaping this idea of Asia? What should leaders do as they navigate towards, within, and beyond evolving Asia?
It is our hope that our conference will prove to be an insightful survey of the economic, social, and political implications of a rapidly changing Asia.
