About The Emerging Markets Institute

Founded in 2010, Cornell’s Emerging Markets Institute at the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management provides thought leadership on the role of emerging markets—and emerging market multinationals—in the global economy. The Institute brings together preeminent practitioners and academics from around the world to develop the next generation of global business leaders and create the premier research center on the role of emerging markets in the global economy.


The EMI mission is to be the premier institute for emerging markets worldwide, to affirm the importance of emerging markets in the global economy, and to equip leaders with the purpose, insights & tools to thrive in emerging markets.
