4th Annual Global Opportunities Conference will be held April 13th, 2012

The Business of Building a Better World

Friday, April 13, 2012
Broyhill Inn and Conference Center,
Appalachian State University, Boone, NC

As global connections increase, so does social and economic interdependence between countries. Economic stability, immigration and environmental degradation are all issues that transcend national boundaries and require cross-national solutions. Our students are uniquely positioned to participate in creative solutions to such daunting global issues. How can the skills students are learning be used to implement and support initiatives that will benefit those who need help most?

The theme of this year’s conference is “The Business of Building a Better World.” Our keynote speaker, Ms. Isabel Richardson of the Madras Christian Counsel of Social Service in Chennai, India and our luncheon speaker, Mr. Ken Isaacs of Samaritan's Purse will tell their stories of work with the starving, marginalized, and poor in India and around the world. We consider how the skills students acquire here at ASU can be used to transform such lives and communities. Students will also share their experiences serving and learning abroad.

Come hear about “global opportunities” to put your business skills to work in ways that can help build a better world.

The conference is free and open to the public. Registration is now open!
