Center for Emerging Markets

Director’s Message

Welcome to NU’s Center for Emerging Markets (CEM)!

Founded in 2007, CEM is a leading center for research on issues facing private and public organizations in emerging economies. It is guided by a distinguished External Advisory Board and has over 60 faculty fellows from across NU.

CEM Fellows conduct award-winning research, organize international research conferences with leading partner schools, and host visiting scholars from around the world. The David R Nardone Seminar Series brings leading experts to campus to share their latest insights on emerging markets.

For students, the Center brings distinguished speakers to campus and exposes them to emerging markets through international study trips, courses, and co-ops.

For the business community, among other things, CEM organizes an annual symposium. CEM has been funded by the Liberty Mutual Foundation, the US Department of Education, and generous gifts from CEM fellows, NU alumni, and friends.
