The line-up is set for the Center’s 7th Business Forum: “Strategy in times of change”, to be held September 12-14, 2018 at the Columbia University Global Center in Paris. We are proud to bring together global decision-makers from Kaiser Permanente, Allianz, SCOR, the NHS, Johnson & Johnson, as well as from Sorbonne and Columbia Universities, just to name a few. Please check out our distinguished faculty:

As the leading Forum for global decision-makers we offer a range of inspiring topics and cases for discussion as well as the opportunity to make global connections during extended breaks, lunches and our kick-off reception on September 12. The agenda is now final and touches upon all perspectives of strategy – from macro policy changes to very specific organizational issues of management implementation:

The Forum is designed for global executives in healthcare business and strategy to discuss the latest developments, challenges and opportunities shaping the industry. Working hand-in-hand with leading thinkers from around the world, the event provides attendees with an ideal forum for networking as well as rigorous analysis and foresight. The Forum – now in its 7th year – has been conceived to help the world’s top healthcare executives seize the moment. Previous participants rave about the interactive, content-rich and personal experience:
Executives are invited personally and represent all stakeholder perspectives. The total number of participants is limited to ensure effective networking and matchmaking opportunities in a confidential setting. About 50% of participants join us from the United States, 40% from Europe and about 10% from Asia and the Middle East.
