This year’s European Business Environment Seminar of the Executive MBA at multi-campus business school, ESCP Europe, may turn out to be the most challenging, but ground-breaking, in the programme’s history, according to the school’s dean, Frank Bournois.

The 2017 seminar, which takes place at the heart of Europe in Brussels from 18th to 20th April, will bring together external speakers, many of the schools top academics and programme participants from more than 30 countries to look at how cross-border businesses can work most effectively in the era of Brexit, the Trump presidency and unpredictable elections across the continent.

“It’s no coincidence that one of the key electives on the Executive MBA is ‘Managing Uncertainty’, because we face what is possibly the most uncertain future of modern times”, says Frank Bournois.

“Many of what have been seen as fixed points in recent years, such as the cohesion of the European Union and our relationships with both the US and Russia, are now in doubt. However, Europe is still and will remain one of the most important trading blocs on the planet and it’s consequently vital that we help our EMBA participants to shape strategies that will embrace that and grasp the opportunities the coming years will offer. And we shouldn’t forget that the lessons learned here in Europe are going to be invaluable in any of the other commercial and cultural hot-houses around the world. Because, as one of our people recently said to me, ‘If you can succeed here, you can succeed anywhere’.”

The European Business Environment Seminar is part of a series of five dedicated seminars embedded in ESCP Europe’s Executive MBA. The next offers a choice of locations in Brazil, China or India in October 2017.
