Event Details

Being a dean with the many responsibilities that come with the role can sometimes leave you a feeling of being alone with your challenges. Which of course you are not. These Online Workshops for Deans are made for you as a support for you to find solutions to questions and problems you might be encountering during your deanship.
The objective of these interactive workshops is to discuss specific and central themes that deans and directors face. You will have the opportunity to learn about the topics with the presenters, but you will equally have the time to discuss openly and share your experience under the Chatman House Rules with peers worldwide.
You can register to these workshops per session or all together as a series.
Please note that places are limited to 25 participants for each session to keep the discussions interactive.

Target group:

Deans or Director General of the entire institution with overall school management responsibility.

Limited number of participants:

We will admit a maximum of 25 participants to this workshop to enable an interactive experience for you.
Registration will close as soon as this number has been reached.

Programme

Thursday 14 October

14:00 – 16:00

Diversity and Inclusion
Implementing diversity is the intention of many institutions. But how do you concretely reach this goal? And what about inclusion? Shouldn’t this the real objective? Or is the next step?

  • Susan Nallet, Head of Student Experience and Employability at Grenoble Ecole de Management, FR
  • Morris Mthombeni, Interim Dean, Gordon Institute of Business Science, University of Pretoria, ZA
  • Moderated by: Michael Page, Professor of Finance and Management, Former Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, Bentley University

Thursday 21 October

14:00 – 16:00

From risk awareness to risk management
Risk management is moving up the priority list for business school deans as institutional income is becoming more reliant on volatile, non-public revenue streams and is impacted by technological change as well as shocks such as COVID-19. Business schools furthermore need to increasingly align themselves with university policies on risk and, in this context, must also show greater concern how the financial performance of other faculties and schools may impact their contribution margins. Finally, accrediting bodies are paying more attention to risk in reporting and peer review as part of their viability checks.

This workshop focuses on two aspects that are most difficult to handle in the context of managing business school risk: How to develop and foster a school-wide risk culture and how to bring the concept of risk appetite to life in strategizing and operations. After exploring the meaning of these concepts in general, participants will link them to the state-of-the-art tools of risk management as they are deployed today. We will discuss their limitations and workable steps towards overcoming them with reasonable effort. The workshop will close with the development of a change agenda that keeps risk management in step with the evolving risk landscape and able to address disruptive threats where likelihoods and impact are difficult to quantify.
