Why are the Twin Cities such a strong center for corporate headquarters? Myles Shaver, professor of strategic management and entrepreneurship at the U of M’s Carlson School of Management, will share insights into this question, based on his research into the Twin Cities headquarters economy. The answer lies in understanding the essence of headquarters--the managerial pool that guides and governs these companies. Shaver, who holds the Pond Family Chair in Teaching and Advancement of Free Enterprise Principles, is the author of the just released Headquarters Economy: Managers, Mobility and Migration.

This is one in an ongoing MCC program series under the banner “Driven to Discover.” The series features University of Minnesota faculty and students sharing current research and programming at the University.
