About The Emerging Markets Institute Conference 2021
In the 2020s more than ever before, ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) concerns will be crucial for business, especially in emerging economies. Emerging multinationals will be key players in both offering solutions and mitigating their own impacts, as society grapples with its own destructive effects on our planet. Understanding and responding to social issues, such as poverty, inequality, and marginalization will be crucial, as business leaders seek to make positive change and eliminate harmful practices. And finally, scrutiny of firms’ governance will be a primary concern.Clients, partners, employees, and society at large expect firms to be part of the change for good. Hence, in 2021, the theme of our report will be ESG in Emerging Markets.

About the 2021 Case Competition
The case competition is a key event in the conference. It boosts collaboration among universities and strengthens Johnson’s ties with other academic institutions. Moreover, it speaks to EMI’s focus on international and inter-institutional collaboration.
This year, participants in the case competition come from MBA and other graduate-level programs in the United States, and across the globe.
Goal: The impact of globalization towards business, both locally and globally, is immense and ignoring it would be a catastrophic undertaking. The goal of the case competition is to identify and answer questions that real businesses and managers are posing today in relation to Emerging Markets. The growing role of Emerging Multinationals in the business world continues to evolve and this case competition seeks to challenge us to come up with win-win solutions for expanding stakeholders.
