2019 Global Operations Forum

October 29-30 | Atlanta


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:

  • 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.
