Plenary 4 – Partnerships for Impact
This session introduces the stream dedicated to partnerships and impact. Business school Deans and institutional representatives will discuss how to provide positive impact through partnerships.

10:00 – 11:15

Sharing Best Practice Sessions: Partnerships

B1 The Nova Case: Partnering with business

B2 What is the local impact of international partnerships?
Local stakeholders are often dubious about the impact of international partnerships on the Business School’s local or national impact zone. Yet, based on the experience of business schools involved in impact assessment, we know that international partnerships, but also international implantation of campuses, have a significative impact on local or national economy.
The aim of the workshop will be, based on testimonies of Deans, to identify this impact, and in doing so, help business schools to convince their stakeholders of the importance and relevance of international partnership and strategies.

  • Moderated by Michel Kalika, BSIS Co-Director, EFMD Global Network
