BOISE STATE EXECUTIVE MBA PROGRAM, IDAHO DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE TO PRESENT ECONOMIC OUTLOOK FOR BOISE FEB. 18
Boise State University’s Executive MBA Program is collaborating with the Idaho Department of Commerce to provide insights on the current economy, perspectives for the future and strategies for tapping opportunities.
The two entities will present the Economic Outlook for the Boise Business Community workshop on Feb. 18 and will address the economic questions on the minds of business owners and public sector leaders, including:
• Where are we? What is the current state of the economy and financial markets?
• How did we get here? How does today’s situation compare with high-tech bubble of the ’90s and how do we share the blame for the current situation?
• How do we get out of crisis? What is the role of the financial industry bailouts and emerging fiscal policies?
• What does the future look like for the U.S. economy? What is the short- and long-term outlook from a local, national and international perspective?
• What are the international impacts of the financial crisis? What effects and opportunities are found for Idaho’s trade partners in Taiwan, China and Mexico?
Expert presenters include:
• Don Holley, Ph.D., chairman of the Department of Economics at Boise State
• Keith Harvey, Ph.D., associate professor of finance at Boise State
• Eddie Yen, director, Idaho Department of Commerce Idaho-Asia Trade Office
• Cao Guoli, manager, Idaho Department of Commerce Idaho-Shanghai Trade Office
• Armando Orellana, director, Idaho Department of Commerce Idaho-Mexico Trade Office
The workshop will run from 7:30-11:30 a.m. Feb. 18 in the Simplot Micron Technology Center on the Boise State campus. The cost is $99 per person and includes breakfast. Workshop attendees are invited to continue the discussion during an informal, low-cost luncheon at the new Boise River Café in the Student Union Building immediately following the workshop.
