IMD FEBRUARY 2012
REAL LEARNING@IMD

Dear Reader,

Facebook wants to make you an offer you CAN refuse. With the leader in social media approaching its IPO this month, IMD Professors Arturo Bris and Salvatore Cantale question the worth of Facebook shares.

IMD announces a stream on China for this year’s Orchestrating Winning Performance (OWP) program and our editorial aligns. From a battle in solar power to China’s potential to develop global brands, the country remains a rising global power in the world of business.

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
