GBA Dean to Lead Event on Handling Rough Economy

David Gautschi, Ph.D., dean of the Graduate School of Business Administration, will lead an upcoming discussion designed to help executives negotiate the harsh economic conditions buffeting the nation and world.

At 8 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 9, Gautschi will facilitate “CFO Thinktank: Shaping the Future of Business,” at the University Club in Midtown Manhattan.

He will present data that suggests the economy in an extended period of uncertainty, and that this is reflected in confusion surrounding business schools’ curricula and emphases.

In the discussion, which will be held in partnership with the CFO Alliance, he will address:
• how CFOs should plan in an era of economic uncertainty and increasing confusion;
• how CFOs can manage through the next crisis and prepare for market changes;
• what CFOs can do to prepare the next generation of financial talent for an evolving business climate.

Tickets are $30 for non-members and basic CFO Alliance members and free to CFO Alliance all-inclusive members and first-time attendees. To register, visit
