Making It Work In Mexico: A Land of Opportunity?

Entrepreneurship, innovation, sustainability… These are three very popular words in the international business press. Mexico, America’s #2 trading partner, has a lot to offer, including its geographic proximity, its cultural depth and creative energy, its rich natural resources, its diverse manufacturing base, and its dynamic and youthful population of nearly 130 million people.

What is the reality of new businesses being successfully launched, new products being developed, and long-term climate and sustainability issues being met in Mexico? How are Baruch alumni “making it work?” Join Baruch Professor Stephanie Golob and Baruch alumni currently living and working in Mexico for a discussion about these topics, their victories and challenges, and whether Mexico is truly a land of opportunity.
