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.

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