949574_-jigsaw_world-Being a global business leader is no easy task, but George Mason University President Ángel Cabrera is more than qualified to hold this title.

In a special lecture titled “Being Global,” Cabrera will share his insights and discuss important and emerging trends and issues in globalization. The lecture is part of the Center for Global Studies’ Globalization Dialogues and takes place in the Meese Conference Room in Mason Hall on Thursday, April 11, from 3 to 4:30 p.m.  Provost Peter Stearns will provide introductory remarks.

A reception will follow in the Mason Hall Atrium.

In the lecture, Cabrera will draw from his recent book “Being Global: How to Think, Act and Lead in a Transformed World,” as well as from his business and academic experience in the U.S. and Spain.

Before he was named the sixth president of George Mason, Cabrera served as president of the Thunderbird School of Global Management in Arizona and dean of IE Business School in Madrid.  His international business experience also includes chair of a United Nations international task force, chairman of the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council and board member on the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (Fulbright Scholar Program), along with many other roles.

Cabrera’s views on global leadership, higher education and corporate citizenship have been quoted by leading global media, including The Economist, Time, CNN, CNBC, El País, Forbes, the International Herald Tribune and The New York Times.
