Le Moyne Hosts Business Session on China and India

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … The Le Moyne College Signature Series presents a session on “China and India: Why it’s Imperative to Tinker with Success” on Thursday, Dec. 8, from 9 – 10:30 a.m. The session will take place in the MBA Conference Room, located in Grewen Hall, and will be led by Bernard Arogyaswamy, professor in the School of Business at Le Moyne.

China and India have enabled large sections of their population to go from abject poverty and backwardness to relative comfort in the span of a mere two decades. The paths they have followed and are hewing to are similar to, and yet very different from, each other. Both countries have weathered the economic downturn rather well for a variety of reasons and are expected to play an increasingly influential role in world affairs. However, both the Asian giants face a host of problems and dilemmas, some of their own making, which could come back to haunt them. The road ahead could have more hurdles than the one they have left behind.

The session will look at the divergent trajectories that China and India took to reach their present positions of relative success, the impacts of their ascent on other nations (particularly their neighbors and the United States), and what they need to do effectively (and guard against), in the years to come. It will close with a brief synopsis of how the two nations are attempting to compete against developed countries in technological innovation, and make particular reference to an industry in which both of them are investing heavily - renewable energy.

Dr. Bernard Arogyaswamy teaches strategic management, international business and entrepreneurship at Le Moyne. Arogyaswamy was a Fulbright Professor at the University of Warsaw, Poland in 2002-03, and is a visiting professor at that institution. He has published numerous journal articles and book chapters, most recently on innovation in China and India, and on social entrepreneurship.

The session is free and open to the public, although reservations are suggested. For more information or to RSVP for the session, call (315) 443-4280.
