IMD SEPTEMBER 2010
REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

How do Silicon Valley companies transform ideas to startups? This is just one of the questions IMD’s Executive MBA class will look in Silicon Valley during their Discovery Expedition. Learn more about this trip at the EMBA blog and check out the latest features of the new Executive MBA web site.

Speaking of blogs and social media, are you on Facebook? Do you tweet? Do you leverage social media in your job? IMD's latest Great Debate weighs in on whether social media is overrated as a marketing tool. Join the discussion and enjoy.
Best regards,
The IMD Webletter Team
