MBA Workshop: Dealing with China in an Age of Trump
August 9, 2019 @ 5:30 pm PDT
Presented by Antioch University Santa Barbara’s MBA Program and Santa Barbara/Weihei Sister City and Co-Sponsored by SBCC’s Nadel School of Business & Entrepreneurship
Over the years, relations between the world’s two largest powers have evolved to a complex mix of trade partnership and intensifying political rivalry. Recently the Trump administration’s policy toward China has shifted the foundations of our relationship with the People’s Republic, prompting several essential questions.
Are the administration’s policies justified? Are the instruments of US policy the most effective? If our relationship has been damaged, is it subject to repair? Are alternatives still possible? What would those look like, and what lies ahead?
Given the rising global tensions, it’s time for us to reach out and explore what may come. Join us for a conversation that will examine:
- The foundations of US-China relations
- Overall implications of the current policy
- Future outlook and possibilities of damage or repair
Our main speaker for this event will be Dr. Benjamin Jerry Cohen, Lancaster Professor of Political Economy at UCSB. Professor Cohen will be joined by two panel members: Daniel Lender, the Executive Vice-President and CFO for QAD and Noel Rix, the Vice-President, Global Product Development for Deckers Brand. The 3 experts will engage with one another and respond to questions from the audience. The moderator will be Dr. Peter Haslund, Vice President of Santa Barbara City College Board of Trustees.
The event is free. Business attire recommended.
