Redesigning the Undergraduate Curriculum

May 5–7, 2019 | Providence, Rhode Island 

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 the future.

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

This conference features curricular initiatives to help schools navigate an environment of intense competition, financial constraints, growing employer expectations, and disruptive technologies. Learn from a diverse range of schools as they share content and best practices in critical areas of curriculum design and implementation. On your path to continuous improvement, discover strategies that will put you a step ahead of the competition.
