Mark A. Cohen, Director of Retail Studies at Columbia University’s Business School, and former Chairman/CEO of Sears Canada, will discuss the situation of the global retail industry  as many retailers have been forced to close stores, furloughed thousands of employees and are losing most of their sales due to the Covid-19 pandemic while consumers cut back on most purchases. Join us for a live discussion with professor Cohen to talk about the technological, financial and logistics challenges that the industry is facing and how this will impact  it in the future.

The interactive live webinar will be chaired by Georges de Bourguignon (MBA/MIA’17), President of the Columbia Business School Chile Alumni Club and member of the Santiago Global Center’s Advisory Board.
