Dear Reader,

This month IMD’s MBA turned 40 with the graduation of another group of future leaders. We invite you to explore the MBA’s past, present and future.

We are also pleased to bring you a series of videos from the 2011 Nikkei Global Management Forum where IMD President Dominique Turpin had the opportunity to interview business leaders.
Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
