Duration:60 minutes

As educators, we seek to navigate the complex landscape of international forces affecting political and economic stability. Against strong headwinds, colleges and universities must redefine their role. How can we adapt to this rapidly changing landscape? How can we anticipate and best prepare students to shape the future world?

Please join Bloomberg for Education and the Association of Professional Schools of International Affairs (APSIA) for a roundtable conversation with leading international affairs professionals who are both practitioners and deans of schools. We will explore the global market forces that students will have to navigate in their professional lives.

APSIA is dedicated to the improvement of graduate education in international affairs. It brings together the leading graduate schools around the world that specialize in international affairs. They work to help students, schools, organizations, and partners transform themselves into effective agents of positive change.

Bloomberg for Education helps universities prepare students for the global job market by bringing the real world of finance into the classroom, providing students with access to the same information platform used by leading decision makers in business, finance, and government.

In this presentation, we will explore:

  • Critical stabilizing and destabilizing factors in the world and their potential impact on the markets
  • How these factors could alter the university experience globally going forward
  • Ways for universities to prepare future leaders for success in this altered world


Danny Quah

Danny Quah is Li Ka Shing Professor in Economics and Dean at the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, NUS. He works on income inequality and on world order. In his research, he documents the variety of inequality experiences across economies to suggest that a single narrative on inequality is unlikely to be correct or helpful. On world order, he takes an economic approach to international systems, studying the supply and demand of world order: on the one hand, what international system the world’s superpowers provide, and on the other, what world order the global community needs. He uses this to recast analysis of global power shifts, the rise of the east, regional order, and models of global power relations. Additionally, he is a member of the Spence-Stiglitz Commission on Global Economic Transformation. He is the author of “The Global Economy’s Shifting Centre of Gravity.” He gave the third LSE-NUS lecture in 2013, and TEDx talks in 2016, 2014, and 2012. He was previously Assistant Professor of Economics at MIT, and then Professor of Economics and International Development, and Director of the Saw Swee Hock Southeast Asia Centre at LSE. He had also served as LSE’s Head of Department for Economics, and Council Member on Malaysia’s National Economic Advisory Council. He studied at Princeton, Minnesota, and Harvard.
