Rutgers Business School Thought Leadership at the London Olympics: Achieving Sustainable Economic Growth

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

The scrolling snippets on CNBC and the BBC, radio bulletins on Bloomberg Radio, and headlines across the business news pages have not been pretty lately. Banking scandals, the instability of the Euro Zone, the looming "fiscal cliff" faced by the US government, manipulation of LIBOR, and questions about the viability of the EURO, have weighed on investors, businesses, and citizens around the globe.

As part of its Thought Leadership series, Rutgers Business School has assembled a panel of experts to discuss ways to solve these challenges and bring fresh ideas to achieve sustainable economic growth. The backdrop of this discussion will be at the London Olympics on August 5th at the USA House, the Business & Hospitality Center of the US Olympic Committee.

Joining the discussion will be Meyer S. (Sandy) Frucher, Vice Chairman of the NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc.; Jean-Michel Six, Chief European Economist, Standard & Poor's; Diahann Lassus, founder, President and Chief Investment Officer of Lassus Wherley, a wealth management firm; and Michael P. Albanese, Global Head of Clearance, JP Morgan Chase Bank, NA.

Rutgers alumni and friends at the USA House, located at the Royal College of Art, will be able to network, mingle with Olympians and benefit from Rutgers Business School’s Thought Leadership. The USA House is where US Olympic Medalists celebrate their victories.
