Event Details

THEME AND MOTIVATION

Business Schools are under increasing demand to demonstrate their impact and are referring more and more frequently to the issue of impact when defining their mission/vision/strategy. In 2018, out of the 55 schools to which the AACSB and EFMD board members belong, 42 (that is 76%) use the terms “impact” or “influence” in defining their core purpose. More importantly, schools are becoming increasingly aware of the strategic value in assessing, measuring and analysing impact.

EFMD Global Network in cooperation with HEC Liège will host on 24-25 April 2019, its first BSIS symposium on “Assessing Impact – Questions and Answers”, to take place at the premises of HEC Liege, Belgium.

Since its launch in 2014, BSIS, run as a joint venture between EFMD Global Network and FNEGE, has successfully assessed 32 business schools all over the world and is a proven tool for Business Schools to demonstrate their real impact, meaning and legitimacy within their communities. 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

This one and half day event aims to widen the debate on impact assessment, examine current trends, share global best practices and provoke insightful discussions. The first day of the event will be open to schools that have undergone the BSIS process to share their experiences and learning outcomes. The second day will explore in detail all aspects of impact assessment including the opportunities, methodologies and challenges and is open to all school representatives interested in learning more about the assessment process.
