A special partnership between The Children’s Museum and the IU Kelley School of Business will showcase the Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit (in its only U.S. appearance for 2014) along with a high-level roundtable with Kelley faculty experts and top Indiana executives. The discussion will offer unique insights on how Hoosier companies are building relationships – not walls – and doing business in China and around the world.
Receive 20% off your admission to The Children's Museum anytime between now and November 2, 2014. Each member of your group can use the discount, but you MUST have a coupon for each person. If you are a current Kelley student or faculty/staff member, you may also use your JagTag to receive the same discount.
China’s Terra Cotta Warriors guarded the tomb of emperor Qin Shi Huang, who forged the Chinese empire and ordered construction of its Great Wall. But China’s modern economic power hasn’t come from building walls, but removing barriers to trade and foreign investment.
China is Indiana’s fastest-growing and third-largest export market, behind only Canada and Mexico, and foreign exports as a whole account for more than 10% of Indiana’s economy. More than 100,000 Hoosier manufacturing workers owe their jobs to foreign investment, and more than 500 international companies have a presence in the Indianapolis region.
Successful companies are seizing global growth opportunities, and business careers are demanding more international savvy. This event offers a rare glimpse of China’s past, and a strategic look at Indiana’s future in the world economy.
