Business School Finance Professor Jian Yang, PhD, MS, MA, BS, was invited as one of eleven experts to the brainstorming meeting to prepare for the 2014 World Economic Forum summer Davos meeting — or the Annual Meeting of the New Champions. The meeting is a summer session, continuing work from the 2014 World Economic Forum winter Davos meeting, which was held Jan. 22-25, 2014.

These meetings are being convened to discuss innovations in science, technology, society and business. Last month’s session featured esteemed speakers, including Microsoft founder William (Bill) Gates, journalist and commentator Arianna Huffington, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, and Philip J. Jennings, General Secretary, UNI Global Union.

Yang said he is honored to represent CU Denver as he plans for this session of the World Economic Forum meeting to be held in Tianjin City, China, this coming September.
