While cash remains the dominant method of payment throughout the world, students and faculty heard from Ajay Banga, president and CEO of MasterCard, on the misperceptions around the cost of cash and the value of electronic payments during a visit to the Samuel Curtis Johnson Graduate School of Management on March 4.

Featured as a Distinguished Global Leader Speaker, Banga spoke during a fireside-chat-style conversation on the question Do you believe in a world beyond cash? with Vrinda Kadiyali, Nicholas H. Noyes Professor of Management and professor of marketing and economics.
