Event Details

In the past months, business schools have demonstrated an inspiring ability to adapt. As we are moving beyond the adaptation phase, a long-term transformation and building a solid foundation for the years to come has become the next challenge the industry needs to tackle.

The following programme focuses on two pillars of business school transformation that are essential to build in order to remain relevant as an institution in the present and future environment – sustainability and digital transformation.

How do we walk the talk and approach a task as complex as embedding Ethics, Responsibility and Sustainability? How do we navigate the digital tsunami and create an effective digital infrastructure that will stand the test of time? How to overcome the barriers to change? What are the implications for leadership? How do we lead such a transformation?

Every successful transformation begins with the leader. This programme therefore also attends to your personal leadership as the foundation for mastering digitalization and sustainability ahead. With a fairly practical approach, Mette Sjöberg Anthonsen will co-create space for you to reflect on your strengths and needs in relation to maneuvering and engaging in new territories. Building on Theory U, she will focus on concrete skills such as listening and pre-sensing the future, in order to equip you to lead ahead.

The programme will be facilitated by:

  • Jordi Diaz, Dean of EADA Business School, Director of the EFMD Executive Academy
  • Andreas Rasche, Associate Dean of Copenhagen Business School
  • Mette Sjöberg Anthonsen, PhD., Coach (PCC), External Relations, University of Gothenburg, School of Business, Economics and Law

Target Group

Executive Academy Alumni, Programme Directors, Associate/Assistant Deans of Teaching & Learning and Senior Program Managers with a complete overview of the entire academic cycle (though not necessarily direct responsibility); admissions, programme design & administration, career services and alumni management

Digital Badge 

After completing the programme, participants will be awarded a digital badge. Digital open badges are a tool to recognise learning and training and to allow recipients to show off their skills and achievements. Metadata are embedded in their image to allow for quick verification of the credentials. The badges are linked to a verified webpage that contains information about who earned the badge, how it was earned, who is the issuer, what skills the badge holder gained or any additional evidence linked to the training.


This workshop will be run using Zoom. To ensure the best Zoom experience, we recommend that you install the latest version of Zoom Client for Meetings. If you are not familiar with Zoom, you can test the tool via this weblink.

Sustainability in the context of business education & driving sustainability transformation

  • Andreas Rasche, Copenhagen Business School
  • Mette Sjöberg Anthonsen, University of Gothenburg, School of Business Economics and Law

This session provides a platform to discuss why there is a need to integrate sustainability content into management-related programs. We review the relevant and urgency of such an integration. Further, we revisit a framework that enables participants to drive the sustainability transformation of their respective programs and institutions. The framework allows participants to assess where the program/institution stands right now in terms of sustainability content and how to best design a change process.

Leadership element

A brief introduction to leadership for the future, and reflection assignment to take with you to Wednesday.

Sustainability in business education: Overcoming barriers to change

  • Andreas Rasche, Copenhagen Business School

We discuss how to best overcome barriers to change when integrating sustainability concerns into management programs or entire institutions. Addressing such barriers is critical to avoid that business school start to make claims that do not match reality. We discuss selected barriers (e.g. lack of resources and organizational politics) and share a number of best practices to address them.

The digital tsunami

  • Jordi Diaz, EADA Business School

According to a recent Digital Vortex index by IMD, Education joins the group of the most exposed industries to digital disruption along with Media & Entertainment, Retail, Telecommunications, Technology and Financial Services. The industry is gaining momentum as shown by the increase of venture capital and the growth of EdTech Unicorns valued in excess of USD 60bn.

After a period when the most important thing was ensuring continuity, gaining efficiency and improving the learning experience for both students & professors, it is now time for academic leaders to establish a clear innovation and growth plan for their programs, services and even business models. The end of the academic year coincides with the beginning of a new era for higher education. An era in which all experts predict that we won’t continue all “online” but neither go back to normal. An era in which academic institutions are called to cooperate with non-academic players to skill, upskill and reskill younger and older generations that will need to be reeducated for a job market that will destroy at least as many new jobs as it will create.

Tuesday 15 June 2021

15:00 – 16:30

The future is hybrid & The power of partnerships

  • Jordi Diaz, EADA Business School
  • Julio Villalobos, Salesforce
  • Andy Poole, Coursera

In a complete peer-learning spirit, participants will be invited to focus the discussion on the future of the industry, the future of their institutions and the future of themselves as leaders of this newly reimagined reality. Each participant will be invited to refrain their survival mode and to install their transformed vision for their programs, students and society. 

Higher education will be hybrid – in-person and online learning -. Will academic institutions be ready to operate in an eternal ambidextrous way?  Higher education will move from an ego-system of “Universities owning education” into an ecosystem in which governments, companies, and digital platforms will become part of this educational ecosystem. Will then academic institutions be ready to operate in cooperation and competition within this new market called higher education?
