“Leadership and Strategy in a Global Economy,” the inaugural Notre Dame International Business Seminar, will be held Sept. 2 to 8 at the University of Oxford’s Corpus Christi College.

The seminar, sponsored by Notre Dame Executive Education, is open to managers, senior executives, Notre Dame alumni and friends of the University interested in enriching their understanding of the skills necessary for success in today’s global business environment.  It will examine best practices for competing successfully and responsibly in the global business reality of the 21st century.

Leo Burke, associate dean in Notre Dame’s Mendoza College of Business and director of Executive Education, and William Brewster, director of international programs for Executive Education, will be among the seminar’s faculty members.

“We seek to develop a cadre of global executives who are considering ways to increase the likelihood of not only corporate success, but also societal and global success over the coming decades and centuries,” Brewster said.  “This seminar focuses on the broad issues of success in a global environment with special emphasis on strategy, leadership and corporate social responsibility.  We also will explore how to navigate the business waters of China, Europe and the United Kingdom.”

International business experts will work with participants in interactive sessions to explore and develop models that will enable them to lead and compete.  Participants also will tour an award-winning high-tech British company to discuss and study its formula for success.
