Global Speaker Series

The Global Speaker Series brings international leaders to Stanford GSB for broad-reaching conversations about the global context of today’s business environment.

Each year, a student leadership team invites a small group of top business, political, and social sector leaders to speak to our students on management and leadership in the global context. The series offers speakers an opportunity to discuss their personal views on the challenges inherent in leading multinational organizations and enacting change in an increasingly interconnected world.
