Welcome to Northeastern University’s Center for Emerging Markets (CEM), which was founded in 2007 in anticipation of the rise of these countries in the global economy! It is today a leading center for research on business and public policy issues faced by firms operating in these countries.
CEM was launched with seed money from the Liberty Mutual Foundation and subsequently won a 3-year grant from the US Department of Education.
CEM consists of 60 outstanding faculty-associates from NU’s D’Amore-McKim School of Business, the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, the College of Arts, the Law School, and the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice. Its faculty associates conduct research on how firms can leverage high-growth emerging markets for global competitive advantage and disseminate best practices for success in these countries. It is housed in the business school.
