2020 Global Operations Forum

October 13-14, 2020 | St. Louis


This program will examine international operations run by colleges and universities, with a focus on management and business support for programs operating overseas as well as compliance with both U.S. and foreign regulations. Topics on the agenda will include:
  • Identifying and tracking worldwide activities;
  • Global support models and best practices;
  • International human resource and benefits issues;
  • Foreign banking and cash management practices;
  • Distance learning challenges when operating overseas; and
  • Innovative business processes to support international activities.
Whether your institution is relatively new to operating outside the U.S. or has a dedicated global operations department, this forum will offer you the opportunity to learn from campus experts, hear the latest developments from international operations professionals, and network with peers facing similar challenges.
