MAILED: Sept. 14, 2001
EAU CLAIRE — The College of
Businesses of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and UW-Oshkosh will host a
Wisconsin symposium on “India and Globalization, Challenges and
Opportunities,” from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 2, and from 8 a.m. to 4:45
p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Park Plaza Valley Inn, Neenah, Wis. The event is
also supported by a grant from the UW System’s Institute of Global Studies.
The economic liberalization of the 1990’s has pushed
India, the worlds’ largest democracy, to the center stage of the globalization
debate. This symposium offers a forum to assess challenges and opportunities in
a balanced manner.
Welcome to attend are faculty engaged in or planning to
teach or research issues related to globalization and India; deans and
administrators with interest in internationalizing programs; students majoring
in business, economics, international relations or a related discipline; and
practicing managers and entrepreneurs interested in international business.
Oct. 2 will begin with registration and a welcoming
address followed by sessions on the political economy of India, the social
cultural milieu, the impact of globalization on literature, living in two
worlds, and taking globalization to the classroom. Presentations will be
followed by breakout and plenary sessions. At 6 p.m. there will be an Indian
dinner, followed by classical Indian music and dance performances beginning at 8
p.m. and screening of an Indian film, “Hyderabad Blues,” starting at 9 p.m.
Oct. 3 will begin with registration followed by
discussions focused on individuals and companies interested in the Indian
market. Sessions topics include marketing your product/service in India,
investment climate: strategic perspective, and information technology and human
resources issues. Presentations will be followed by breakout sessions focused on
moving from the classroom to globalization.
Enrollment is limited, so early registration is
recommended. Fee is $30 for faculty and $15 for students for one day or $50 for
faculty and $25 for students for both days. Registration fee covers the cost of
all symposium handouts, coffee breaks, lunches and the Indian dinner on Oct. 2
