Partnership with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)

In 2006, Professor Conley partnered with the United Nation’s World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in an ongoing effort to teach senior business leaders in developing nations how to create a competitive advantage through Intellectual Capital. WIPO, an intergovernmental organization, promotes intellectual property rights to developing countries to accelerate economic, social and cultural development. Conley, known by his Kellogg colleagues and industry practitioners as an authority in the intellectual property area, is also furthering WIPO’s global reach by helping to create an unprecedented online program that focuses on intellectual property rights. The program, set to launch in 2008, will be made available through WIPO’s Web site.
