Students had the opportunity to hear from this veteran in International Marketing about how to seek the opportunity in International Market. Moreover, students will learn how to use the data to estimate the potential International Market. Thank you, Professor Gary Knight!

It was a great honor to have Prime Minister of Iceland Geir Haarde come to my seminar on Trade Insiders. PM Haarde was confronted with managing the deep recession in Iceland of 2008. His presentation addressed the special links of macro and micro forces which had to be managed in order to restore trust in government and the economy. A true insight of national impact in a multilateral world!
Seminar participants had the opportunity to hear from Mr. Jozsef Szamosfalvi, a professional specialized in emerging market structured finance underwriting and risk mitigation. The focus was on infrastructure, financial and energy sector projects. Mr. Jozsef Szamosfalvi is managing director of Interlink Capital Strategies. He highlighted the role of the private sector in trade finance, and directly addressed employment opportunities. Georgetown graduates have left a strong track record. A new option to become a true insider!
It was a great pleasure to have Mr. Barry Rhoads, the Chairman of Cassidy & Associates – the largest lobbying firm in Washington — return to my seminar. He gave an overview of US trade and the exposure of importers under the trade policy of the Trump administration. As to be expected – an excellent and in-depth analysis, accompanied by forecasts of the 2018 midterm elections.
