Emerging markets are regions in which "politics matters at least as much as economics" to the market. For us, at the Ross School of Business, emerging markets are primarily international, and include transition economies such as China, India, Brazil, etc., but can include local domestic markets, such as that of the Detroit Metro Area. The Emerging Markets Club is comprised of current and future leaders committed to economic growth using innovative and competitive management strategies, methods, and tools. We draw our inspiration from the likes of Mohammed Yunus of the Grameen Bank, C.K. Prahalad who coined the term "Base of the Pyramid" and, along with Stuart L. Hart, pioneered a new direction for companies such as S.C. Johnson, BP, DuPont, Unilever, ICICI Bank, and more. Through our annual career trek to Washington DC and student-initiated course in Winter A, we are continually proving Ross to be the nexus of academic, professional, and entrepreneurial activity in emerging markets.
