Today, the dynamics of power are shifting. The emerging markets of Asia are blooming into economic, social, political, and academic powerhouses, and corporations are riding the wave of globalization and international expansion.

In tomorrow's world, the notion of being "multinational" is increasingly instrumental to success. It is important to educate the future leaders of business, politics, and academics about the wealth of global opportunities created by the emerging economic powers of Asia. We hope to bring this education process to Yale University, by organizing a conference that brings together leaders from economic powers of Asia to speak to motivated, passionate students that will rise up to the task of global leadership in their futures.
