HE Sheikha Aisha bint Faleh Al-Thani, Member of the Supreme Education Council of Qatar and Cass alumna, said the global recession is providing the perfect opportunity for the World Bank and the IMF to evolve their organisations.
Speaking at the inaugural Cass Alumni World Forum, Mrs Al-Thani said before the recession the IMF’s role was being marginalised and it was coming under criticism from representatives of emerging markets economies for favouring larger economies.
She said now is the time to give a larger voting power to the BRICs nations and the next eleven of growing international economies.  Mrs Al-Thani also called for more business school research into the causes of the recession.
The Cass Talks interviews are an opportunity to hear Cass faculty and prominent alumni give their perspective on current business and finance news stories, global issues affecting the business world and new research coming out of the School.
