Register today for the University of Miami Global Business Forum, which will take place Jan. 12 - 14, 2011. This highly anticipated event, organized by the School, will be an opportunity to delve into The Business of Health Care: Defining the Future, the theme of the conference.

The featured speakers include some of the world's most prominent business and government leaders. The Forum will also feature a series of panel discussions, organized by schools across campus and in six tracks:

These panel sessions will also feature leading company executives and internationally recognized health care industry leaders.

The 2011 Global Business Forum will come two years after the University's first Global Business Forum, which drew nearly 700 alumni and others to campus for deep discussion on the economic crisis and other issues surrounding increased global connectivity. The 2009 Global Business Forum was headlined by such industry titans as Jack Welch and the CEOs of The Coca-Cola Company and McDonald's Corporation.

"Like the first Global Business Forum, which was held in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, the 2011 conference will provide an unparalleled opportunity for deep discussion on some of the most critical issues of our time - areas where business and health care intersect," said Barbara E. Kahn, dean of the School of Business. "With the participation of schools across campus, this will once again be a truly interdisciplinary program that cuts across industry sectors, much like the business of health care does."

University of Miami alumni and other members of the community are invited to attend the 2011 Global Business Forum. For more information and to register, visit www.UMglobalforum.com.

The Forum's key sponsors include Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida and Bank of America Merrill Lynch. For sponsor information, please contact George Corton, the School's senior director of development, at 305-284-4052 or Gcorton@miami.edu.
