The Wharton School, where I’m a professor, was the world’s first collegiate school of business. We’ve been celebrating our 125th anniversary this year.
The finale event is the Wharton Economic Summit, a conference that will be held in Philadelphia on April 12-13. It has a great line-up of speakers, including Merrill Lynch CEO Stan O’Neal, financier and philanthropist Michael Milken, and Wharton’s own stock market guru, Jeremy Siegel. And… somewhat further down the program… it has me, moderating on panel on “The Future of Technology: On-Demand Society.”
In all seriousness, it should be a great conversation, featuring renowned HP researcher Bernardo Huberman, the always-insightful business strategy consultant Christopher Meyer of Monitor Networks, and George Pohle, head of IBM’s Institute for Business Value. And the rest of the agenda isn’t too shabby either. If you’re interested in the future of business and the economy, I hope you’ll join us at the event.
