Helping Firms Leverage High-Growth Emerging Markets

Our faculty consistently produce high-quality research and spearhead essential events that bring together experts in emerging markets.

Symposia, webinars, visiting practitioners: We engage emerging markets professionals in numerous ways.

From International Field Studies and Global Consulting Projects to the Emerging Markets Minor, we provide opportunities for students to extend their learning well beyond the classroom.

Faculty affiliated with the center are regularly called upon by the media to provide context and analysis to emerging markets issues.

Take a closer look at our annual activities with our annual newsletters.


The Center for Emerging Markets operates in three distinct areas, including a robust research agenda; significant work aimed at influencing business practitioners; and educational activities designed to ready the next generation of business leaders.

Faculty fellows conduct award-winning research, organize international research conferences with leading partner schools and host visiting scholars from around the world. The David R. Nardone Seminar Series brings leading experts to campus to share their latest insights on emerging markets.

For the business community, among other things, the center organizes an annual symposium. Funding has been provided by the Liberty Mutual Foundation, the US Department of Education and generous gifts from fellows, Northeastern University alumni and friends.

For students, the center brings distinguished speakers to campus and exposes them to emerging markets through international study trips, courses, and co-ops.
