Global Business Journalism Lecture Series launches
Born of necessity amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Global Business Journalism Lecture Series has quickly become one of the most popular initiatives of the Global Business Journalism Program.
The lectures feature prominent journalists from around the world, as well as business leaders and policymakers. The one-hour sessions are
free and are open to Global Business Journalism students, alumni, faculty and friends. We are particularly pleased to welcome future students and potential applicants to sample our intellectually stimulating offerings from the comfort of their homes.
The Global Business Journalism Lecture Series offers diverse viewpoints from a wide range of
speakers. The series includes sessions building journalism skills, discussions of important trends in journalism and communication, and informative lectures on major international public policy issues. Among the key missions of the series is fostering women's leadership, promoting diversity in workplaces and building cross-cultural bridges among people from different nations.
All sessions are scheduled for 9 p.m., China time, 9 a.m. EDT (Washington time), unless otherwise noted. Email us at for Zoom conference ID
