"Global Economic Future and the Role of Indian IT"


Narayana Murthy, founder of Infosys - a Stephen A. Ogden Jr. '60 Memorial Lecture

India's economy and society have been transformed in recent years - in large part because of the rapid rise and global reach of its information technology industry. Murthy, as founder of Infosys, one of India's largest information technology companies, is considered by many to be a father of India's information technology revolution. He will discuss India's national strides, its powerful new international position, and the role technology has played.

The Ogden Lectures were established in memory of Stephen A. Ogden Jr., a member of the Brown Class of 1960, who died in 1963 from injuries he suffered in a car accident. His family established the lecture series in 1965 as a tribute to his interest in international relations. Previous Ogden lecturers have included former President of Brazil Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Queen Noor of Jordan, former Canadian Prime Minister Kim Campbell, media mogul Ted Turner and former Sen. John Glenn, among others.
