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 SDMIMD will host on 17 April 2019, the Impact event “Measuring the Impact of Business School Education in 21st century for Excellence in Quality”, to take place at Hotel, ITC Gardenia in Bengalore.

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.

  • about different impact dimensions and how to measure impact of a Business School
