Hari and Madhu Varshney Visiting Scholar in Indian Studies, and Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) Visiting Scholar Dr. Kanika Bhal, will present a lecture at the Jack Austin Centre for Asia Pacific Business Studies.
Dr. Bhal's lecture topic — Belief Systems and Business: Indian Cultural Values and Their Interpretation in the Contemporary Business Context — addresses the role that culture plays and how it is interpreted in business.
Cultures provide a frame of reference for all human interactions - interpersonal, social and economic. Key Indian cultural values are rooted in mythological belief systems perpetuated through rituals and stories. Find out what some of these values are and how they can be understood on a societal and individual level in the context of modern business.

The Visiting Scholars Program in Indian Studies was first established by Simon Fraser University and the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR) and was named the Hari and Madhu Varshney Visiting Scholars Program in Indian Studies in recognition of the Varshney's generous investment. The program will foster and strengthen cultural relations by hosting world-class Indian scholars from a wide range of disciplines such as international studies, contemporary arts, business and world literature.
