February 6th, 2023 from 8:30AM-12PM EST on ZOOM.

The Creating Emerging Markets (CEM) project based at Harvard Business School’s Business History Initiative has been conducting lengthy interviews with top business leaders in emerging markets since 2008. These are hosted on a public website featuring full interview transcripts and associated video clips that are free to download and use for teaching, research, or general interest. At this online conference, speakers shared their experiences using CEM transcripts and video materials for teaching in different institutional contexts in Europe, India, Latin America, and the United States. Each session included time for discussion and debate to lay the foundation for a community of scholars exchanging ideas on the value of oral history collections for various classroom settings. CEM video clips were also played during a short mid-session break.

The speakers were Chinmay Tumbe (Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad, India), Jeffrey Fear (University of Glasgow, Britain), Sudev Sheth (Lauder Institute, University of Pennsylvania), Andrea Lluch (Universidad de los Andes, Colombia), Marcelo Bucheli (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign), and Tarun Khanna (Harvard Business School).

The online conference was organized by CEM Faculty Co-Chairs Tarun Khanna and Geoffrey Jones (Harvard Business School).
