Event Details

This conference is tailored to fit the expectations of directors and administrators of MSc and MA programmes from all over the world. The event is a unique occasion for networking, sharing and debating issues and opportunities present in Masters programmes.
When entering a Master programme, the diversity of students’ backgrounds is wide due to their working experience and individual motivations. Keeping in mind the complexity of managing Masters programmes, we base the sessions around topics such as global trends and new markets for Masters programmes while staying relevant to all attendees.
The 2019 Conference will focus on various aspects and elements leading to success under the title “Success Revisited”

Please note: this conference will not deal with MBA programmes as EFMD organizes a yearly event dedicated exclusively to MBA programmes.

A1 Developing capabilities in online and blended learning
In this session, we will discuss different approaches to developing capabilities in online and blended learning. We will start from the strategic rationale, then present the steps that ESMT Berlin and Lancaster University Management School went through to build the EdTech teams. We will look at key aspects such as “make or buy” decisions around the business model, choice of platform, structure and roles within the EdTech team, and new program opportunities in development in the Master’s space. The session will begin with short presentations on the EdTech journey at both schools, but the majority of time will be devoted to a conversation and Q&A.

  • Nick Barniville, Associate Dean, Degree Programs, Director, EdTech Lab, ESMT Berlin, DE
  • Mark Dawson, Director of Digital Education, Senior Teaching Fellow, Lancaster University Management School, UK
