REAL LEARNING@IMD
Dear Reader,

East meets West... it's a theme that many modern businesses can't help but explore. And it's a theme that keeps coming up in our thought leadership from exploring Acer's rise to global powerhouse to succession challenges for family businesses and winning through social media in China.

Let your mind be nourished with Asian business practices and, if you're looking to go more in depth, explore the IMD-CKGSB dual Executive MBA program.    

Best regards,

The IMD Webletter Team
