Globalisation (The Cambridge Judge Business Debate podcast series)


Is the globalisation which has shaped our world over recent decades slowing or even moving backwards in the wake of the Brexit vote in Britain and the election of Donald Trump as US president, asks the first podcast in the Cambridge Judge Business Debate series.

“Globalisation isn’t a new phenomenon. It didn’t start in the 1980s in business schools – it goes back to before the Industrial Revolution, and there are periods where it has stalled and gone into reverse,” says podcast series host Michael Kitson, University Senior Lecturer in International Macroeconomics at Cambridge Judge.

Other participants in this first episode are Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Diageo Professor in Organisational Studies and Director of the Doctoral Programme at the Business School; Stelios Kavadias, Margaret Thatcher Professor of Enterprise Studies in Innovation & Growth and Director of the Entrepreneurship Centre; and Neil Stott, Director of the Master of Studies in Social Innovation programme and the Cambridge Centre for Social Innovation.

This first podcast, which focuses on the topic of Globalisation, encompasses all of those issues and more.
