The Future. That’s what we prepare students for—to be confident leaders with the knowledge and skills to effectively adapt to, and overcome, the challenges of an evolving global economy. With so much emphasis on what’s next, it’s imperative for b-school curricula to focus on what lies ahead and adapt. Nowhere is this more imperative than within MBA degree programs.

In addition to preparing students, curriculum is the essential ingredient for high-quality management education. It reflects your school’s unique mission, encapsulating the intellectual capital and character of your business school brand—an evolving element to align business with practice.

Specifically geared towards MBA curriculum, this conference is designed to aid business schools to think strategically about questions of purpose, positioning, and program design, as well as offer guidance through the curriculum redesign process. Drawing on diverse experiences and best practices, Redesigning the MBA: A Curriculum Conference will provide valuable insights about the content and pedagogies of graduate level curricula for full and part-time programs while also allowing participants to network and exchange ideas.
