Offshoring and the Globalization Transformation: a McGill on the
Move event with Omar Toulan.
How truly globalized are we? Is globalization a linear process? What role does the offshoring of production and services play in a globalizing world, and what are the challenges it poses for firms?
These are among the questions that Professor Omar Toulan of the Desautels Faculty of Management will address on May 3. Join us as we welcome Professor Toulan, an expert on international business and strategic management, for a discussion on globalization and the role of offshoring.
This event includes a cocktail reception courtesy of Audi Bank.
