Join us for a series of free live webinars to help you to understand the impacts of the COVID-19 virus on our way of life and business world.
In the midst of all the questions you are asking yourself, the aim of our HEC Paris Professors during these webinars, delivered in English or French, is to try to give you some keys to build the world of tomorrow and meet the new challenges that lie ahead.
Fears about deglobalization and economic decoupling are not new but have grown in the wake of the coronavirus. While the crisis is still ongoing, there seems to be a debate between two schools of thought.
The first believes that once the crisis is over, authorities will need to do all what they can in order to help economic actors get back on their feet as the world opens back up.
The second believes that “business as usual” won’t be an option and that the business environment, as well as companies, will need to undergo deep transformations.
In this session, we will discuss the consequences of the coronavirus.
Is this the most recent illustration of the risk of economic decoupling? Will it affect the business environment in a profound way, or only in the short term?
We will also identify some of the lessons learned and what the outbreak means for the global environment going forward.
