Business schools steer a difficult course in navigating the fog caused by a disrupted environment and an unprecedented demand to align values with societal demands and a new generation of students. In this time of change, it is helpful for industry professionals to join forces and navigate their way towards a future-proof transformation.
The EFMD Annual Conference gathers several hundred members of the management education community to tackle burning subjects such as the impact of globalisation, collaborative research, creative leadership and digital learning strategies. Over two days, professionals in different administrative and managerial positions from all over the world participate in a dynamic learning and networking event that helps them move towards impactful business education.
