A World Divided or Connected by Risks?

When:  Jan 15, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)

The world is facing a growing number of complex and interconnected challenges – slowing global growth, persistent economic inequality, climate change, geopolitical tensions, and the accelerating pace of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in AI and technology. We will review the top 10 global risks facing higher education, and discuss the impact of these risks. Attendees will learn:
1. How macroeconomic risks impact the financial market and changing business model in education
2. How geopolitical and geo-economic tensions rising among the world’s major powers influence international plans
3. How environmental risks will affect education research in biodiversity, plus location partnerships
4. How technological vulnerabilities raise the risk of identity theft, fake news, and loss of privacy to governments and companies.
5. How global risks are having a negative impact on mental health.
